Poems - Superhero Sonnet
you're pretty handy with your trusty sidekick, the pencil
As for flying..well, let's just say that gravity and I have an understanding. I won't fly, and it won't write poetry.
Here's my very different sonnet of the same title (and form), posted about a year before:
The beast from Krypton puts on quite an act;
That oh so ordinary guy they call
Clark Kent can almost blind us to the fact:
He isn't really one of us at all.
Less alien is Peter Parker, whose
Genetic makeup mingled, so to speak,
With an arachnid's. Though he did not choose
This fate, the fact remains that he's a freak.
I'd have my heroes be of human kind,
And darker, so I sing now of Bruce Wayne,
Who, haunted, haunts the wicked well, we find,
With fully human body, human brain.
Though not exactly just one of the boys,
He's but a man, made great by super toys.
