TO THE PHONE BOOTH
An ordinarily not so uneventful day
Some twisted mind not so far away
Eyes the museum in a most selfish way
Gotta get them jewels Yeah

Oh but the phone booth is very near
And dear ole Kent, he would not dare
Leave the pages of the comic book for fear
His city, his love forever will bear
The brunt of greed to chagrin severe
TO THE PHONE BOOTH© gillena cox 2015

Written for Fireblossom's prompt
Imaginary Garden With Real Toads

The challenge: The first part of the challenge is to write a poem which includes an old-fashioned rotary phone with a little bit of surrealism, or poetic magic.

  5. A lot of fun--clever rhyme and an emotional tussle--should superman leave the comic or not! Thanks, Gillena-k.

    2. He's got to stay on the job no matter what the phone booth looks like. I'd like someone like that around--a guardian angel from days of comic books--as long as he doesn't get baked in to one of those very bad movies.
