                                                                  Gods of Earth

                                               two indestructible gods, thrust into being
                                          born to a foreign planet ravaged by evil and war
                                     every passing moment brings Earth closer to its demise
                                                      I think not, justice will prevail!
                                    you, an Amazonian queen, wrought by the hands of gods
                                            and I, an alien prince, became a man of steel
                                                      blessed by Earth's yellow sun
                                    with strength absolute, we could tear this world in two
                                                    but no, this land is now our home
                                              Earth needs protectors Diana, me and you
                                                once again, the planet is under attack!
                                            together, we''ll carry the world on our backs
                                                   evildoers beware! and run in fright
                                                  you pale before our combined might
                                                     and you'll do this world no harm
                                       A man and a woman, born to a foreign planet that
                                                             turned them into gods
                                            you, a proud unbreakable Amazonian queen
                                                  and I, an indestructible man of steel
                                           with strength absolute, we'll defend Earth until
                                                                 our dying breaths
                                            this world needs protectors Diana, me and you
                                                     together we'll see our planet through
The first in my series of poems about male and female superheroes teaming up. I chose to start with Superman and Wonder Woman, who are very similar. Superman represents an ideal of masculinity, while Wonder Woman represents an ideal of femininity. They're both nearly invulnerable, and in my opinions are cookie cutter superheroes. I didn't write using as many fancy words as I usually do, mainly because I tried to make it match Superman's personality; a simple but good-hearted person. I also think that they're back stories are simpler than a lot of other superheroes, so I wrote this poem with simple, yet meaningful words.

That's really lovely. I think of them as kindred spirits...similar ideals and aspirations, despite their different upbringing. Similar but different enough to be unique. Can we have this for the sm/ww art group? There is a literature folder for poems and stories etc. :)

Of course :) And hopefully the rest of the superhero poems I'm submitting will be liked. I already let the group have the poem.
