NaPoWriMo 2014 Day 2

The NaPoWriMo promp for day 2 was to write a poem influenced by myth. I created a geeky twist on the challenge:

Stan the Man

Stan the Man knew his fans,
They liked action, heroes, and justice
For all – the American way, with
Captains and mutants,
Men of iron – more tarnished than steel.

He then thought of Gods,
How the myths had them sit
In judgement over man
On a mountain high,
As they lived in luxury.

But how much more intriguing,
To bring those Gods to Earth?
To make them more like humans –
With love, and strife, and wars,
Against enemies and friends alike.

He saw a God of thunder
His weapon a hammer of might,
To call forth the storm, the lightning,
To be a beacon of hope.
A God but also a man.

So Stan the Man,
Who knew his fans,
Brought the gods down here to fight –
To fight for Good, against Evil,
To save the day, and the girl.

And the fans who knew,
Knew the heroes, the gods,
The mutants and angels too,
Were just like them,
And so they bought issue two.
