Queen Soldier Calafia of the Sovereign State of the LDC Imagination, 450 Years Ago
There reigned in California, her homeland,
Queen Calafia, Black Matriarch Knight
extraordinaire of legendary fame,
beauty and might known over Oceans.
She hears word of military actions,
of looters, raiders, and worthy rivals.
She’s looking for a Goode Fight and her girls
are ready. Under command, her nation
of women, alert, well-trained, and tested
like the Amazon. She ruled her island
that lay near Heaven, hotlands, and gold-
rich land. And she willed herself to battle,
not Mistress with lowered fists, collapsed heart,
nor the futile crying of men's warfare.
