Of Heroes and Villains: A Poem
From Popeye to Superman no heroes survive
replaced with those of some new video game
it's only our memory that keeps them alive
together with those villains of any name.
And so it is away from the fiction
with new faces of justice and crime
it's so easy to make a good prediction
for people don't change along with time.
There will forever be heroes and villains
and those like us to cheer for good guy
in the race of them no one ever gains
their ultimate score to always be tie.
Maybe by some principle unknown to man
balance is a rule of the universal scheme
we don't throw dice, just play as we can
for every nightmare always a dream.
And so goes on our epics of living
with struggle between evil and good
with numbers of heroes often deceiving
and villains to match them more than should.
