! Heroes Are Dead! - Poem by Marvin Brato Sr

Like sacrificial lambs

were heroes quite dead,

with courage they thread

the fate that others feared

to die for sake of majority.



No matter what obstacles

or threats to their mortal lives

heroes dare risk their own honor

to prove the innocence of victims

who succumb to the devilish souls



Heroes stand for justice

and bring back the lost pride

grabbed and stolen by loan sharks

whose only concern is self interest

to enrich more thus wrecking the poor



Heroes deserve a monument

as memoir of their great sacrifices

in every race and country a hero is born

who fights against dictators of destruction

Heroes are the epitome of social justice
