Banished and Cast Out!: A Poem

Updated on December 15, 2016

The first step is to know what you do not know. The second step is to ask the right questions. I reserve the right to lean on my ignorance.

Source

Banished! Banished and Cast out! Evicted from my proper realm,

plunged into an inferior realm. I hate it here, of course.

Its so primitive here, so lacking in power, such a niggling,

measly domain, barely a place to prop up my feet.


The beings, here, are so weak and stupid and cowardly.

They are unfit for companionship with one such as me.

Why have you done this to me? Why have you given

me this indignity? Why have you burdened me so?

You called me power-mad, mad with power, mad for

power. Is it mad to want to bring order to a chaotic

galaxy? No, it is mad to do nothing to prevent it from

descending into anarchy, disorganized confusion, and

mayhem.


You call me evil, but civilization has always come

at the price of the disciplined use of force! Surely,

as a student of history, you know this simple thing.


So, is this, oh Lords of Krypton, your final judgment

of me, this banishment? Very well, I shall have my

revenge. First I shall avenge myself upon these

pathetic lower creatures, these mere talking

monkeys! I shall make them suffer grievously

and they will not know why. And the harder I

punish them, the louder and more pathetically

will they cry out, "Noooo! Pleeeeaaase! Stooooop!

Whyyyyyyyyy! Awwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww!


Fathers of Krypton, you have no vision, worse,

you are blind. You would have our people confined

to the small prairie of our own planet, when we should

be taming the stars! Lords of Krypton, I shall tear you

from your high place, I swear, and destiny will be

mine!

      Thank you so much, Frank Atanacio! I really appreciate it. Writing verse is not my strong suit, but I have been inspired by the works I've seen around HubPages!

      You are very generous, Frank, and a true master of the craft. I will be back to your section very soon, and satisfying myself with your brilliant wordsmithery!!

      Thanks again so much!
