AN AMERICAN POEM

 

There is no Superman

Crusader against crime

Swooping down to save you

Just in the nick of time

 

There is no Superman

No hero made of steel

Our fantasies are frail

Our loneliness is real

 

There is no Superman

In his bight red cape

No one to stop the murder

No one to stop the rape

 

There is no Superman

No flying lightning rod

There is no Superman

Just like there is no god
