Ode to the Queen

Today she’s laid to rest
With flowers and Respect
She reigned supreme on stage
Always dressed, always decked

Out with her gowns and furs
As she graced any stage
She brought all to their feet
Every time she played

The mic to R & B, Jazz
Gospel or classical tunes
Her voice reaching octaves
That only other presumed

To merely mimic
Or imitate the soul she gave
There will never be another
Aretha Franklin, “There Ain’t No Way”
