Sunday Superheroes

Sunday Superheroes
by David Rutter

What a sheer act of will it must take
Of machismo and courage
My Sunday Superheroes
Grappling with evil
In hand to hand combat
All potbellies and cellulite
Spilling forth
From your ill fitting spandex
Trailing forced bonhomie and curses
Like so many capes in the wind
Wearing your hearts on your sleeves
Fueled by little blue pills
And dreams of erectile glory
I raise my cup of Ensure to you
A toast to delusional folly
Wishing you nothing
But Godspeed
On tenspeeds
