Today’s prompt for OctPoWriMo was on obsession, desire or lust.
Hmmm, quite a lot of ways to go with those prompts, not all of which would fit this particular blog. 🙂
I went around other blogs having followed this prompt and I saw a wide variety of approaches. My favorite so far was from Diana T.
Be sure to read to the end. Very clever approach to the prompt.
This that I decided on was for the fun.
Ode to a Villain
I know it’s the good guys
For whom I should cheer
They fight for the right
And villains instill fear.
Yet sometimes a villain
Captures our imagination
Perhaps he’s not completely evil
And not too late for redemption.
This villain we love
Is acted with skill
And written with layers
So to watch is a thrill.
One minute he dazzles
Frequently he schemes
Always full of mischief
Not as simple as he seems.
This villain is a favorite
And yes, we may be obsessed,
But the reasons are many and varied
For why we remain so impressed.
