Captain America - Barnsey's Attempts at Poetry!

Updated on April 20, 2012

Super Patriot

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.

Captain America

The Captain

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

      Nice my man! The Captain has always been my favorite. A true underdog in every sense of the word. How much fun it is to root for someone who should never prevail, yet somehow almost always does. Great poem. Keep it coming!
