Tina Turner’s Shoes

by Allison Joseph

When Cher came to see Tina
They laughed and laughed and laughed.
Two high-heeled, sequined divas
With fans and autographs,
They dazzled us with music
In movies and on stage,
Defying all those critics
Who mock a woman’s age.
Survivors of the seventies,
Two queens with legs for days,
They laughed at all the memories
And all their diva ways.
And when Cher left her bedside
A pair of shoes to bless her.
We all deserve such lifts!
