Poetry Challenge #43

It’s a Bird! It’s a Plane! It’s…

There are days when I really need a superpower. Today is one of those days. I’m thinking you might wish you were a superhero too, sometimes.

Since Superman, Wonder Woman, Catboy, Flash, Batman & Robin are taken, we’re going to have to create other…better! Interesting! (Useful, at least) Superhero personas of our own.

Unfurl those capes, don those masks and let’s get to it!

If you could be a Superhero what would your super power be?
Would you be a Spidey who scaled walls and swung from web?
Would you be a super jumper or super strong?
Could you make yourself invisible, super small, or giant, or green?
Just as Superman fears Kryptonite, every superhero has a weakness, what would yours be?
Best, how would you use your super powers?

Set the timer for 7 minutes.

Start writing!

Don’t think about it too much; just do it.
