Marching Orders

You will not be so,
nor I, not brutal - today
you will not be crude.
We shall grope our way
into the pure whiter light,
deathless and filmy,
diaphanous wings
and a transfer of halos
leading the last lost
sad souls into truth
and the American Way
just like that brave lad
from midwest Smallville
the alien boy wonder
and his crystal clarity,
his purest of hearts.

  1. I think we each could use a Superman in our lives in the daily grind of things; thanks for being that to someone in your life today

  2. Would it be that it were so. I suppose that following his example is a great ideal even if we don't go quite as high or pack such a punch.

  3. You really know how to flip the poetry coin..deathly diaphanous wings..rounded off with superman..clever indeed..

    1. umm, deathLESS filmy diaphanous wings...

      Otherwise, thank you Jae. Superman was obvious once I wrote "American way" - the rest was sarcasm of a sort.


The chicken crossed the road. That's poultry in motion.
