Today’s prompt. —  The challenge – to write a persona poem — that is, a poem in the voice of a particular person who isn’t you. But choose a very particular kind of person. How about a poem in the voice of a superhero –

Well my choice is not that of a traditional superhero – but he is a superhero to me 🙂

See if you can guess who you think it may be 🙂

Wake up and smell the coffee!

Do nothing more

just smell

do not crave the coffee

do not drink the coffee

for the coffee cannot bring

everlasting peace

just release for a moment

and smell the coffee;

better still


wake up!

Oh – and please buy your fair trade coffee from an ethical outlet.
