November Poem-a-Day: Day 4

Prompt: Thank you for continuing to rock this challenge! I approved many comments yesterday–so if you’ve been having issues with commenting, I hope they’re cleared up now.

Today is our first Tuesday of the challenge, and I like to do a Two-for-Tuesday prompt on Tuesdays. You can write to the first prompt, the second prompt, both prompts, or whatever tickles your fancy. Here are the prompts:

  1. Write a super hero poem.
  2. Write a super heroine poem.

Heroic

A hero is a sandwich and heroin is a drug
One tastes quite delicious
And the other makes me shrug

The point is I’m not buying what our culture dishes out
That winners are heroic
And the rest should go without

I think that in this world of ours, awash in disregard
That the simple act of caring
Earns us all the hero card
