Another National Poetry Writing Month entry, another pop culture reference. Inspiration tends to come from anywhere, and in this instance it’s in the form of a fuzzy hedgehog some of you might know. If not, that’s totally fine and your childhood is being judged right now; totally kidding, people don’t all watch the same stuff.
While Chili dogs aren’t my thing and grapes aren’t much higher up on the list, I had to dive in a bit due to this Sonic 2 release. Feel free to google certain references. Honestly, it feels like there’s enough content and lore from this series to perhaps rival Marvel.
A continent for every gem,
but Ireland has none of them.
If you caught that subliminal,
You quick as a Makar goal
with an assist from MacKinnon,
Aite lemme slow my spin,
no grapes or chili dogs in question,
if pop culture isn’t your thing,
then I dunno if you’ll like Blue Justice,
see on Green Hills out West,
there’s a speedster jingling rings,
trying to prevent robotic eggs from destructing,
not to mention a madman never deadpan,
from a tragic era to the masses unknown,
no sympathy for diabolical destruction though,
even an Echidna on a warpath knows.
