Yesterday I met Spiderman
in second period no less
chewing cherry bubble gum
which he proceeds to stick it on his desk

I think I also saw Batman
perhaps the day before
dark alley; black hoodie;
weed strewn up on the floor

I see the Flash,
everyday on the track
in those commercial breaks
sports drink in hand, his agent patting his back

Iron Man rescues stockbrokers a lot
to him its no bother
If Superman drunk a little less
he might realize he had a daughter

Green Lantern's dishin' out diamonds
Wolverine's butcherin' them fruits
Mr. Fantastic's lies are elastic
Wonder Woman's acting is ecstatic
And never forget Dick Grayson's
ridiculous, engimatic...




Yesterday I met Spiderman
who I sit behind,
but yesterday I met

you

who showed that little girl where her mother was
with the map you picked off the bottom of that desk
and shined it off with your shirt, and in the mirror, she smiled


And I think that's the most super power of all.

Nice way of using superheroes to describe negative qualities. That... that's not just clever, that's genuinely terrific :D

Great poem.
