NaPoWriMo Poem 6

masculinity & hero making

a whirling force
has been feeding him
the unusual tests

manhood locked in
the antiquated epic

a mad scientist

laughter is the first sign
of infection

maniacal rantings
are a cautionary tale
passed down
for generations

the legacy of his family
blends saga & lore

a radioactive relic
he learns to accept his fate

Prompt: Pick up one of the books you are currently reading. Flip it over to the back of the book and write a poem using the blurbs and info on the back cover. I'm using the back of League of Somebodies by Samuel Sattin.

    1. I love the repetition of "psychotherapy"!!! It gives the poem an mystic that I think adds a layer of interest. And the "remind us" call to action phrase -- so beautifully interspersed. Thanks for sharing.
