The Black Powder Blitz Premiere Contest Winner

Once upon a time... a child celebrated Colorful lights of Crackers... Fluorescence of Fireworks. The black powder bonfires in sky Illuminated his darkness .. Sprinkling showers of acoustic pops. And then... Demons ignited black powder to enslave his mind. His cranium was detonated with guns and bullets. Blitz of Bombs ticked his reverberating Time. His black powder infested blue vest Now singed and scorched.. A belt of Bioluminescence garlanded his waist. How smart he looked.. ready to blow up the Cafe. Aha! That Black Coffee Powder Was Exploding Love of Joy Aha! That Black Gun Powder Was Imploding Hate of Joy. Soon there will be... Scarlet blood spilling in smouldering slag. Broken Glass and Bodies in pulverized roofs. Screams of Resurrect Dreams... He hears a faint whisper..'Son, please don't die'.. But wasn't he a Martyr.....a Superstar? A Black Hole full of Black Powder...Near and Far... The Supernova* waited.... to be a Dead Star... *A Supernova Black Hole is an astronomical concept: They form when a very massive star (at least 25 times heavier than our Sun) runs out of nuclear fuel. The star then explodes as a supernova. A black hole is born when an object becomes unable to withstand the compressing force of its own gravity. Dated 14th November,2018. Submitted to the Black Powder Poetry Contest Sponsor Anthony Slausen. PLACED FIRST IN CONTEST
