Michael Wilbur Completed
Some context; this was an assignment for my Creative Writing: Poetry class years ago. The assignment was to go outside and find something there to write a poem about. After trying and failing to catch a lizard for the fifteen minute period, I happened to witness the arrival of a wandering evangelist who typically showed up on campus around Easter to preach fire, brimstone, and general damnation to all us sinning college students. Assignment target: confirmed.
Side note: I remember I was told to follow a specific meter, but can't remember what it was called; eight, nine, nine, six. If you happen to know what this form is called, please comment and let me know; it's been bugging me lately.
