Kung Fu Movies-Poem

by Samuel De Lemos

Watching a Kung fu movie—
Fists are flying.

The good guy—
he kicks everyone’s ass.

He’s ethically upstanding
and morally thumbs up.

The bad guys are
devious thieves
down for the count.

The narrative is repetitive,
the good guys
beat up
the bad guys—
cowboys always win.

good versus evil,
somehow I always
get caught up
in the clichés.
