2023 NaPoWriMo #15 (Elon)

April is here again and that means its National Poetry Writing Month and for my second year I’ll be joining the 30 poems in 30 days challenge hosted by napowrimo.net. For this challenge, a poetry prompt will be provided daily during the month of April and if I can keep on track I’ll achieve the 30 poems in 30 days goal. So enough chatter…let’s go! It’s time for NaPoWriMo!

Write a poem about a person – real or imagined – who has been held up as and example of how to live life, but who you have always had doubts. Exaggerate the supposedly admirable qualities in a way that exposes your doubts.


This prompt is conspicuously specific! No one is coming directly to mind, I’m going to have to contemplate how to handle this one.

Ode to Me

Oh! The genius of me!
Have you seen my tweets?
My popularity amazes even the likes of me!

Have you met my rocket scientists?
I’ve hired more then a few…
And forced them to pay $8 for Twitter Blue.

Speaking of rockets…
I’ve got one in my pocket
It works I assure you (here, let me show you)!

I went to Stanford for a day or two
It was too boring for me,
I was more interesting in starting a Boring company.

I’m a self-made man,
Aside from my daddy’s emerald mines
The rest of my riches are all mine!

Speaking of riches…
I’m not the richest,
Only second in the world, you poor ass Bitches!

— Elon

Well, actually that wasn’t so hard after I figured out the subject of my poem.

Be well,
