SuperSonic Sue — Wish We Knew

SuperSonic Sue — Wish We Knew

SuperSonic Sue — more steamy than the skies over Chu Lai during Vietnam

     She would have been a Skyhawk, flying attack as a Marine Black Sheep!

We don’t know much about her though we’ve asked hither, thither and Yon

     Her style was just enough on the bottom — and less at the top!

“What’s her story?” — we asked of the museum

     “Remember our airshow in March” they replied, and only that!

Perplexed by that answer and with no other depths to plumb

     Let’s instead think about how she reminds us of Linda Ronstadt!

    Can’t decide whether I like nitty or gritty, best! By the way, you should see some of the RAF WW2 nose art!!

    OMG, don’t compare her with Linda Ronstadt who used to sleep with Gov. Moonbeam n march against the Viet Nam War.
