Captain America - Barnsey's Attempts at Poetry!
Captain America was one of the best comic heroes of all time for several reasons. He represented the core of humanity that still held morality and righteousness close to their hearts. He represented a fallen age. In our current age it was amusing to watch him adjust to how things had changed since he had been frozen alive. It was also amusing to watch him embarass villains with way higher power levels than his own. He was and is the best all around scrapper in Marvel comics, I beg anyone to disagree. His only reliance was upon his mighty shield which was pretty nigh unbreakable. No healing factor, no super invulnerability, just good old American hard work.
This is my ode to the great Captain America and a tip of the cap to the creators and writers responsible for keeping this character alive and strong.
We saw him as a silhouette, the bombs were crashing down
He broke through the iron lines and gave us higher ground
Bullets screamed, men fell, he saved our lives that day
We fought a path to the commandants and justice had its way
He fell one day with his partner at his side
All the world fell silent when they heard the Captain died
When my grandson screamed the Captain was alive
I felt the flowering of pride where my heart and soul doth reside
He lives again and wears the stars and stripes true
The Captain has returned with the red, white and blue
Let all the villains and tyrants hear the clarion call
The Captain has come home, the greatest of them all
