Hunger Games

The movie magic is over for Harry Potter.
The is bite gone from “Twilight.”
Now the Hunger Games—
the next great film franchise.

The story of a future existence
already seen today in reality shows.

It’s a cautionary story
of what happens
when people start to lose touch
with their humanity.

The movie--set in the future.
The issues-- current.

Reality television, violence,
the 99 percent
versus the one percent.
A political allegory.

A powerful message.
An important story.

I have been wanting to read the books for the longest time.  Tomorrow, I’ll see the movie.
