As a part of AP English, this year’s senior class got the chance to read the classic gothic romance novel Frankenstein: The Modern Prometheus by Mary Shelley. Here are some of the poems we wrote in class based off what we read.
How To Care
By: Courtney Vogler
Frankenstein, pull it together!
Show your creation you care
You can do this forever
And make it so nothing can compare
I can help you
Let me give you some advice
Let’s make your care new
And give it some spice
So here’s what’s going to happen
You’re going to give him a hug
And show him who’s captain
But make sure you’re not too snug
Next, you’re going yo ask him a question Like “how do you do?”
This will make a good impression
Even if his answer is poo
Remember to stay happy
Give him a smile
Make sure you’re not snappy
Or he’ll run away for a while
If you take this advice
Your creation will know
That you really do care
And your relationship will be a go
Love in Disguise
By: Katiana Roberts
During this time of the year,
You may feel a little fear.
Some may call you a beast,
But they all know the very least.
You are made from love and passion.
In fact, you are the solution of Frankenstein’s actions.
It is not found through our looks.
And cannot be found in books.
Love is one big surprise.
And sometimes a disguise.
Though you may not know it,
Your creator shows it.
Father of a Monster
By: Jourdan Collins
Frankenstein, how dare you abandon your own creation?
You slaved away for months completely lost in translation.
You say it’s an obligation, a gift from God.
A duty and responsibility to love and care.
You are indeed the creator, despite his ugly hair.
He yearns for your love and attention.
You have no choice but to man up and listen.
Do not be ashamed of your flawed work
The more you ignore it, the more he will hurt.
Filled with misery, your monster roams around.
Lost in confusion, you must listen for his sound.
All that is close and dear to your heart He will continue to destroy until
death do you part.
