Tony D'Arpino

On First Looking into DC Comics Superman

 

 

Oh Superman,

Why do you have a war

Over your head

Like a dark halo?

 

Are you a recycled

Game?

Shut-up.

You’re a journalist.

 

Can you see through the headlines,

Yeoman of Kent?

You’re an alien

Clerk.

 

Wow,

Is that the sunrise?

Don’t let the cape

Wear you.

 

Batman has a better costume,

New worlds to conquer.

You gonna dance

In those slippers?
