Mythical Me

Article link: Elizabeth Warren’s claim to be “part Indian” is correct in mythical terms

I’m mythically handsome.
I’m mythically thin.
By myth and by legend
I normally win.
*
I’m mythically brilliant.
I’m mythically smart.
I have the awareness
Of Mr. Descartes.
*
By day I’m a teacher,
But in my belief,
I morph in the evenings
To Indian Chief.
 *
With deep meditation
And tricks of the mind,
My heritage changes
When I am inclined.
*
And when I’m applying
At Harvard or Yale,
I’m no longer freckled
And no longer pale.
*
For if there’s a preference
I’m certain to be,
Exactly as ordered
As mythical me.

My goal is to produce poetical cartoons. I try to use metaphors and caricatures (or a politician’s own words) to address complex political and social situations. In this way, I sum up current events in humorous verse.
