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.
very awesome. This gives Superman and Wonder woman a totally new perspective. Thank you
