That Guy (Comic Reality)

comic book heros bore me
like there's not enough mystery,
unknowns and drama
in real life people!

I prefer the insightful
rather than x-ray vision
astronauts to the moon and back
not super-human flighters
hard working cops,
diligent, by the book,
other than revenge seeking
super claws, or breath, or speed,
or tentacles

real people doing, living
heroic lives by the millions
written about in books,
on tv, in movies, your own neighborhood

seek them out
get real!
