This poem was not prompted by my friend Danielle. This poem woke me up at 1:43 the other morning. Apparently, it really wanted to be written.Returning from lunch break She sees a monster in the school yard Bigger than the other kids and meaner The monster has a girl by her hair On her knees the girl’s face meeting the railing ringing once twice three times Mild mannered witness becomes enraged blood boiling in her veins bubbling into her ears ringing Muscles taught Legs pump The mild mannered witness becomes Child Super Hero! Child Super Hero throws the monster to the ground and punches punches flails Children gather to witness the heroic battle Until a teacher comes along and sends the fighting girls to the principles office Return to her mild mannered form Child Super Hero regrets nothing
Be Lovely to Each Other,
