Prompt for April 1: Temperamental


[prompt from Poem is titled “High Pride”]

An angry kettle blowing steam,

With its top rattling

Fiercer than a rattlesnake

Underfoot, is no

Match for me.

I might appear as

Fresh as a spring flower,

My eyes wide with excitement,

Still new to the world when

Compared with the ancient

Elements but this assumption

Proves more false than a

A street peddler.

I would recommend

Dear Sir that you refrain

From setting Aries alight in

My eyes, for not even the Earth’s

Warrior—fire—would be worthy

Of besting me.
