Poem – The Complication (By JD DeHart)

The Complication
Slide in Problem #1
since the story’s going too
easily, way too well
It’s a complication
just created around the second
act, since the author did not
realize the story was so simple
A bit of a bad baron dropped
in from the sky, as in:
Why should she be attracted to
But it will propel us to the third
and final act, then hopefully
the sequel.
