Pretty women wonder where my secret lies.

    Maya Angelou advocated infanticide, communism, abortion, and the terrorism of Nelson & Winnie Mandela who burned to death their young political opponents with the necklace (a car tire filled with gasoline) . The woman known by the stage name Maya Angelou (to her dying day) endorsed, praised & consecrated the convicted murderer & torturer of children, the racist known as Winnie Mandela. Angelou must be judged by the company she kept. She stood for death, not life.

    And to a man,
    The fellows stand or
    Fall down on their knees.
    Then they swarm around me,
    A hive of honey bees.
    I say,
    It's the fire in my eyes,
    And the flash of my teeth,
    The swing in my waist,
    And the joy in my feet.
    I'm a woman
    Phenomenally. (Report) Reply
