‘Learning to Give A Damn’ celebrates Black Adam. We reviewed the new Black Adam movie recently. It’s been out for a while now. Long term fans of the DC character were pleased to see their hero in a live action caper, and the film was a success, critically and financially. So, we thought it was only right to celebrate, and give him a poem as tribute
Learning to Give A Damn
A Khandaq dad, he never had a chance:
Teth Adam born, then made into a slave
his life a song of good and evil’s dance
A loving son, his father to save
Then vengeance took him, and he killed the king
to stop the tyrant’s rule once and for all
Peace to himself though, this act did not bring
So, the Gods decided to make a call . . .
The Wizard Council sealed him away
as he had not behaved heroically
perhaps though, there was still hope that one day
he’d learn to be who he was born to be . . .
And what will happen is yet still unsure
He must work out just what he’s fighting for
All words by Benjamin Francis Cassidy

It’s important to acknowledge this depiction of Black Adam is based wholly on the depiction by Dwayne Johnson. Of course, comic books fans can enjoy it too . . .However, the poem focuses on the events in the recent movie. It looks like we’ll be seeing more of the legendary DC character too. Take care dear readers, see you all next Friday!
