Poem a Day – Day 12 – Prompt is Obsession

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.
