stamp of authority!

‘A stamp of authority’ celebrates the fantastic Terence Stamp. Superman II (1980) is a truly fantastic movie, and an iconic one, too. We do love our “supes”, as shown in our most recent episode review of Superman and Lois. This poem specifically pays homage to how Terence Stamp portrayed the evil Krptonian. He really hammed it up and gave us a legendary, iconic screen villain, in his General Zod.

 

Stamp of Authority

General Zod,

Kryptonic God,

in other shades

appears odd

 

Just like his soul,

as black as coal,

his outfit

craves complete control

 

It shows that he,

the boss of three,

has a stamp of

authority!

 

Sexy, it’s true,

and kinky, too,

unlike Kal-El

in red and blue

 

There is no test,

it beats the rest,

his black shiny

suit is best!

May The Verse Be With You aims to make you laugh, if it can! Consequently, that’s why we published poems like ‘Smooth Criminal’, about Lex Luthor. Perhaps it’s time that we have more poems that feature and celebrate iconic villains? There’s certainly no shortage of them to write about, and it would be criminal not to . . . So, expect some more soon! Take care dear readers and stay safe out there!
