Monday Poetry Prompt: Quirk

This week let’s write a quirk poem. Quirks can be humorous, harmless or they can reveal something sinister. It’s up to you. Post your quirk in the comments below.

(BTW, in the anime series My Hero Academia a “quirk” is kind of like a superpower.)

  1. Quincy was an odd one
    usually he would oil his watch
    I did not understand this peculiarity
    really, this behavior was odd
    kids took after him, too
    such an array of idiosyncrasies

  3. I don’t think I’d want to be a vampire
    Yeah, they’re immortal and super strong
    and can turn into a bat and fly away

    But just how long DO they actually live?

    They always seem to be getting staked
    by some wannabe Van Helsing
    or set on fire by the sun
    or thrown into some holy water and exploding

    I bet if you take all the vampires that have ever lived
    you’d find they only have a life span of a week

    I’ll stick with what I have
    and spend some nice afternoons at the beach
