Ode to Grenade Launcher

By: Gavin Byerley


Grenade Launcher,

Takes down people like John Cena,


Bombs away like Civil War,


Abusing defaults in Dusty Divot,


getting wiped

like a memory cartridge,

Shooting shots

in bases like Kobe,

Getting 20 kill games

just like Ninja,

Waste of

inventory space,

I think not,

Valuable like a diamond,

Need a #1 Victory Royale,

Use the

grenade launcher



  1. I published an ode as my poem.
  2. I chose the grenade launcher for me subject of my ode because it is my favorite weapon in Fortnite.
  3. The tone of my poem is grateful.
  4. The theme of my poem is everyone has different opinions on different ideas.
  5. “Valuable like a diamond” is a simile. It contributes to the tone and theme by showing that it has a spot in the game whether you like it or not. “Squads getting wiped like a memory cartridge” is a simile. It contributes to the tone and theme by showing it can do a lot of damage to players and that it’s a very good weapon.
  6. The first revision is made was I changed hurting to abused because it’s a more elevated word. The second change I made was I changed killed to wiped because it makes the reader think what I’m trying to say.
  7. This poem was really easy to write because once I got a subject to write about ideas came to me often.
  8. I am pretty satisfied with my poem because it meets and exceeds the requirements and I spent a lot of time on this poem.
