superhero news – a poem

Side Note:

I’m taking part in the 2014 PAD challenge, which means this is a break in what I usually post. Today’s Poem is to:

For today’s prompt, take the phrase “(blank) News,” replace the blank with a word or phrase, make the new phrase the title of your poem, and then, write the poem. Possible titles include: “Good News,” “Bad News,” “Daily News,” and “Old News.”

Instead of writing for NaNoWriMo, I’ve decided to make these poems inspired by the second draft of my work-in-progress, currently titled “Arch Villains”. It will also be posted in the PAD Challenge post.

superhero news

Earlier this evening
Nemesis
attacked a fundraiser
stealing gems
intended to be sold
at auction
for a children’s charity.
The owner and donor,
auctioneer is missing
presumed dead.
The Ghost was
nowhere to be seen,
he didn’t even engage
the villain.
Sources say
explosions rang out
and no one intervened.
Where are you
Ghost,
when we most
needed you?

How about you?
