Colossus - Barnsey's Attempts at Poetry
A True Romance
Ode to Colossus
He was imposing and grim in appearance but beneath that armored hide there was the soul of a poet. He was the opposite of everything my father told me about the russian men. He was not simple minded or pacifistic to a fault, he was reluctant but he always stood for what was right and true. Even when that would align him against his friends and allies, as occured upon a rare occasion.
Piotr was a painter of true artistic talent and he would have been pleased to ponder his favorite muse rather than go out and do battle. In physical strength he was nearly as strong as the top tier of Marvel strong guys. Just above him was the Thing and below him the She Hulk but his relative invulnerability was another bonus the others did not possess. As long as he remains in his armored form he needs neither air nor food and water.
I will attempt to recite a poem worthy of this great example of men. Not just super men, but ordinary, honorable men as they should be. This true gentleman deserves no less. As a closing note who is with me when I say why don't they just have Kitty marry Piotr and get it over with? Vote on it!
Living breathing solid steel
pull me apart like an onion peel
So much taken not yet regained
armored figure barely restrained
He'd say, There is the foe and why do we wait?
heedless of the danger or the damage he'd take
No threat too great nor promise of death
He need not drink nor bother for breath
No friend truer than this armored knight
keep your honor to your left and find Colossus to your right
The fiend foe, alien smasher, mordock flinger
Artiste extroadinare a true soul singer
Colossus, stand aside or be flung away
living must wait, the sad hero saves the day
But what do you seek oh poet of man?
Only to love as deep as I can.
Who deserves the affection of Colossus? Who would be best for our tortured favorite?
