Once we make it through today, we'll be a week deep into this challenge. Let's keep the poems rolling.
For today's prompt, write a villain poem. You could write a persona poem from the perspective of a popular villain (like Count Dracula, Thanos, or Dolores Umbridge). Or write a poem with a person doing a villainous thing (like eating the last piece of pie or littering). As always, have fun with it.
Remember: These prompts are springboards to creativity. Use them to expand your possibilities, not limit them.

Here’s my attempt at a Villain Poem:
my youth was plagued by villains
but i didn't know it at the time
so i became one myself & broke
christmas lights for fun & got in fights
because that's what villains do
sticking up for each other & breaking
stuff to hear the sound it makes
without a thought for the future
or the regret that follows after
