Cub (an acrostic poem)

Cuddly little bear tried to scare him, but he laughed

Until mamma poked her head out to see what was going on

Been up that tree for the past four hours.  Who is laughing now?

Failsafe (an acrostic poem)

Flipping the switches caused the machine to rumble to life

Already the pressure began to build in the hydraulics

Increasing the mechanical advantage of his every move

Lifting the car over his head, Martin smiled maniacally

Something like that should scare Harvey, but Harvey was not impressed

As Martin sent the car flying into the wall, he turned towards Harvey

Feeling nervous yet Harvey?  Don’t you wish you hadn’t given me this power?

Error was undone when Harvey released his dead man’s switch, shutting down the suit
