When it comes to honoring women

There’s a Will, then there’s a way 

It’s not the time for violence

It’s the Oscars – time to slay

The joke was not that funny

Jada’s crown was on display 

Between Chris Rock and a hard place

Are the opinions on this day

Black women were already grieving 

From politician’s gross display

Maligning Judge Ketanji’s character 

While all truth was held at bay

With Maya in our memories 

We rise to reclaim our day

It’s called Black Girl Magic

There’s simply nothing more to say
