Thor No More

            Thor No More

It’s understood that Thor is another Norse story
With a masculine muscular man and warrior
A mythical character, comic book figure
Son of Odin, with his hammer, as their leader
Not much more
But wait a moment…
Isn't Thor a man as stated?
Modern times calls for a grander change and plan
To blur the lines of male and female
Thor is now a woman warrior
“Thor Girl – called Tarine- super-heroine”
(Heroin, a drug, sounds about right for this) 
Marvel, less than marvelous in pretending
Invented this gender bending tool
Wanting to serve some homophobic sex score
Shouldn't it be Thor-ina or Thor-ette or Thora?
Perhaps Thor should be a ballerina 
Oh Thora how we adore ya!
Hammer in hand standing grand
Breast spread proud across the clouds 
An open mind is what they scream and plead
Reality tells us differently
An open mind, like a lid, opened on a garbage bin
Let’s in everything 
A discerning mind is what makes sense 
The rest is nonsense 
Sieve out the rest
As for Thor
I think of this no more
It’s just a story

    Hi again, I had no clue you are are not attending :) , just as I had no clue about a female Thor and the mistakes that was made around Thor himself. I haven't even heard about Marvel Comics. :) I might be a Scandinavian but have very little knowledge about Norse mythology. I think your poem is really good!

    It's interesting to read about non Scandinavians take on our old mythology and our Norse gods. :) Best of luck in the contest!
