No More Super Heroes

Batman has fled Gotham Town;

Superman is nowhere to be found.

What will we do when there are no more superheroes?

How can we fix the world if we can’t leap over a tall building?

Spiderman’s web is tangled and unwoven;

Wonder Woman in her skimpy outfit is completely frozen.

What will we do when there are no more superheroes?

If we can’t pick up the magic phone and call for help, what will we do?

Perhaps we’ll have to look deep within and realize it doesn’t

take a superhero to stand up to a bully or a bigot.

Each of us has the power within to be a super hero to those around us.


Linking this to Jingle’s Poetry Potluck.

  1. Oh yes, Teresa!! We cannot always rely on someone else (a superhero) to come to our rescue.. we need to help ourselves, and our near and dear ones when the situation demands…

    Well writ, my dear.. we are indeed our own superheroes!! (at least we OUGHT to be :))

  2. we do need fantasy and superheros,
    in reality, we are normal folks…

    let’s live in between, swing our minds and enjoy fiction or poetry now…


    beautiful wonders.
