National Poetry Month (9/30): Ender’s Game in 5-7-5

Ender’s Game by Orson Scott Card

You thought Hunger Games
Was about violent children?
Ain’t see nuthin’ yet.

    It won the awards
    But the short story came first
    And for me works best.

    Tough to read Card now
    That his Godly mania
    Has taken over.

    (Man, for reals. I was reading his blog for a while after I read the first few of the Ender books (which got crappy mid-way through the third one, by the way), and I was horrified!)

  3. Liz Says:

    Had to “google” Card.
    “Love the sinner, hate the sin.”
    I’ve heard that before.

  4. Steve Winter Says:

    In the final game,
    The bugs forgot their Ackbar.
    “IT’S A TRAP!” Too late.
