Need help coming up with a title for my free-verse poem. Don't ask me to explain the allegory. I don't want it to reflect in the title. If you really want explanation I will post one after I have a title.

    The boy drove the impure beast With effort and sweat extreme. The monster’s deformed forked tongue Rhythmically issued low groans. The young lad ignored the beast As he continued to beat The despicable brute on. A burning coal of hatred Smoldered in the boy’s center. He despised this unwanted Unsavory conveyance. Resented its insistence To expend less energy Than the effort he put forth. A rise in the path loomed fast, Without warning, launching beast And rider into the air. Strange sensation to his ears, The complaining now silent. The silence now salient, Brought relief to the youth’s brain. Slightly before alighting The creature bellyaching Spat forward its spinning bit. Terror consuming the kid As so dreadful a dawning Of the impending landing. Became inevitable. The rear of the oddball bird Greeted terra firma first. The abomination lunged. The stiff steal fork of its tongue Driving deep into the earth. The youth’s orbs blazed in terror As he flew over the horns. A fleshy human comet With celerity unmet, Hurdling toward planet still. Pain, a red-hot iron spear Sliced his shoulder to the bone . . . No . . . Through bone to the marrow. Stars twinkled before his eyes. The boy, now prone on his back, Turned his head back up the path. He took solace at sight seen, The steel contemptible beast Protruding from the soil, Tongue the base of body whole. Unwanted gift now destroyed.

    Hmmm. That's not too bad. And it does give a bit of a hint without giving it away which is really what I was looking for.

    I like Struggle of Steel better because it connotes the steel of the boys will as well as the steel of the ----.

    Double thanks for the suggestion. Had you not suggested that title I probably would have (again) missed the fact that I misspelled steel as steal in the fifth stanza.

    Thanks. This class is definitely tougher than I expected. The assignments consist of: A 2-part paper with an analysis of thematically linked works (poem, story, drama) and a preview of how I plan to link my works thematically. A Shakespearean or Petrarchan sonnet OR structured poem where the structure on the page denotes the meaning of the poem. A 700 w parable or a fable A free verse poem + a peer review A 2,450 w realistic short story A 3,500 w one-act play + a peer review All of which have to follow the same theme Then we have to take one of those (except for the one act) and adapt it to an 8-10 page script + peer review Finally we end the course with a 2,800 w Theories of Creativity and Quality paper. Whew!

    Get this. Several years ago (before there were such things as thumb drives) I started and got halfway through a novel before I got a virus that wiped out my hard drive. :(
