Heroes And Villanelles

I grew up loving to read comic books

At first Wonder Woman was the best

And all around people gave me strange looks


On to The Flash, with his speed he caught crooks

A boy, a male hero, I passed the test

I grew up loving to read comic books


Then The X-Men got me into their hooks

I wished for claws and a tail with such zest

And all around people gave me strange looks


Now a teen, I vanished into hidden nooks

To find and buy stacks of comics--no jest!

I grew up loving to read comic books


But words and art, however smart the cooks

Were suspicious things, they said “Take a rest!”

And all around people gave me strange looks


But the comics grew with me, they were not rooks

Now an adult and at a small press fest

We all grew up loving to read comic books

And all around no one gives us strange looks!
