I was on my way to dinner with friends in Midtown when I saw this sign posted in the doorway of an office building. I laughed as I took the picture. What on earth is a “Poets’ Security Force”? Is this force composed of moonlighting poets? Or is it a team of security officers working to keep poets safe? Does the entrance exam require all applicants to compose or recite verse? Is there a uniform, perhaps something incorporating black turtlenecks?
So many questions.

Perhaps it’s like the Justice League, only made up of Poets? The world could use more Poet Superheroes.
I agree!! They would have special powers of vocabulary and meter and rhyme and metaphor. Who needs some dumb Batmobile?
Maybe they fight “bad poetry” and make corrections with their “plumes” that have superpowers?
Keeping poetry safe from corruption with their super-powered writing instruments!! I like that.
