Vendetta

What better way to celebrate Bonfire Night than an ode to V? V for Vendetta is a phenomenal story. It’s also a hugely relevant one, too. A wonderful take on a masked antagonist. Many will know the character from the graphic novel, by the legendary Alan Moore, but some will first have met V in the 2005 film, depicted by the wonderful Hugo Weaving . A thoroughly iconic performance.

Ode to V

 

V, villainously violated viciously,

vexed vociferously, vents vengefully,

vouching vetting vermin vindictively,

vanquishing victims valiantly!

Virtuous vanguard venerating vigorously!

Vaudeville violence, vivified verily,

Viral vogues vied veraciously!

Various vile vestiges vetoed virtuously!

Voicelessness veneered vivaciously!

Vim via valour, values vitalised vitally,

V’s versed valediction’s vested; V’s vision’s verged victoriously!

Following on from last week’s poem, Supernatural Forever, we felt another seasonal special was in order. As ever, our phenomenally gifted resident artist, guest author of last week’s poem, has captured the essence of the work, in a powerful illustration of V for Vendetta. It was a difficult, but fun challenge using only words beginning v for an entire poem! Stay safe folks, see you all next week!
