Learning to Give A Damn

‘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

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!
