A tribute to Queen Of Sheba. Inspired by the Christian and Ethiopian beliefs about her.
Protectress destroyer of the devourer
determined believer exalted
devoted attender of Jerusalem
Expensive gifts imported

Anonymous unblemished innate seducer
with charisma men ensnared
Abundant purveyor of perfume and gems
virginity exotic enthroned

Mahogany complexion young forever
Traditional bijou adorned
Intense yet smooth cacao créme
luxurious material attired

Inquisitive affair of growth as a philosopher
Epitome of equality inspired
Remarkable corona of a humane femme
Autonomous force desired

Black mysterious enigma reciter
Divine intelligence tested
An unprecedented surprise beneath hem
The King's compassion reciprocated

Haile Selassie's progenitor's deliverer
on deceptive condition rested
Thirst increased by them
While to the King's vicinity invited

The King became a ring provider
As the sun Israel departed
The prospective device of New Jerusalem
returned and marauded

Descendant became the Ark's preserver
The alliance serenity persisted
The beginner supreme Mayna Lehkem
The Israeli house established

Axum monarchy commercial receiver
Cherubic attraction enshrined
Headstones arise as identity's emblems
Marine momentum thine
