Growing up, my favorite hero was Spiderman. I used him as the centerpiece of my poem for today’s NaPoWriMo writing prompt. Since he was always such a conflicted character, I decided to give voice to some of his inner turmoil and complaints.
I always liked this superhero because he’s such an underdog. If you would choose a different superhero, who would it be, and why?
Confessions of a Web Slinger
A superhero? Underrated pains!
Those spandex tights, really hurt where they bind.
Crawling through pigeons – imagine the stains!
Working all night, I’m so tired, I find
Bad guys and cops and relationship strains;
And my uncle still haunts me, invading my mind.
One day I’ll find a way to make him proud,
And Mary Jane will claim my love, aloud.
