Mad scientist caricature

The mad scientist hovered above,

his chosen target location,

safely inside his blimp,

he didn’t feel the least bit sorry,

as he pushed the button,

that unleashed his despite,

in the form of a series of earthquakes,

that flattened Washington DC to a giant pancake. *************************************************************************************************** In response to 3 words 20131020: day 293. Today’s words: earthquakes, above, inside, despite, and sorry. Emily

  1. I like the archaic use of the word “despite”. Very interesting. 🙂

      I read a lot of historical romances where they use this form of the word. I thought that it added punch to the poem.
