Dinah suffers from delusions of comic proportions. Though she sits cross-legged in a stiff business suit, she imagines herself leaping and charging in a fishnet leotard, transformed as her alter ego, super heroine Black Canary
I move through the night turning darkness to light, Black Canary.
My bombshell attire may confuse your desire to flee.
Please be apprised that my sensual guise is just a smoke screen.
Cause I'll clean your clock if you think you can just walk away.
Justice for all if you give me a call is what I promise.
I make no exception for any deception, you see.
So please keep in mind all you criminal kind, I'm Black Canary.
You can rely on my Canary Cry to deter.
I'll vaporize any plan you devise I'm Black Canary.
So do shrink in fear, once I scream in your ear, you are done.
