NaPoWriMo – Poem #15

The Tragedy of Being a Villain

One sometimes wonders
what leads a villain down the path
of being miserable and evil.
Is it a simple turning point
or something more?

Would the Evil Queen
have been quite so vile
if when asking her mirror the fateful question
it had simply fallen from the wall
and shattered?

Would Maleficent
have been so malicious
if her invitation to the grand celebration
had been sent and not simply
forgotten?

Would the Sea Witch
have been so devious
if she hadn’t been banished from the kingdom
and instead given a seat at least
near to the throne?

Would the Wicked Witch
have been so vindictive
had someone not committed larceny
and murder against her sister
with a house?

What turning point
would it take,
for a hero to simply become
a villain?
