The Reversed Hero Poem by Dark Angel


Your endurance astound me
Leaves my head reeling
How you hold your bowels
And unzip your trousers
At the nearest well-kept hedge
Or the nearest anything

Your tenderness overwhelm me
I can’t begin to fathom it
When you fight with your woman
Kick her like that soccer ball you so adore
When you lift a finger to her
And send her to the abused centres

Your saintly behaviour is charming
Every time you grab the next young girl
And ruthlessly brutalise her privacy
When you leave her for the dead
Taking away an innocence irredeemable
Killing the only hope of a promising life

Your timidity is awardable
Your demeanour indescribable
When you shove away pregnant women
And kick the little ones out of your path
The way you look down at the helpless
With reckless and heartless abandon

Your desire to be respected is appealing
You earn it every time you act macho
You treat all with condescension and contempt
Leaving hearts with the urge o respect you more
Your low opinion of women and others weak
Is what makes you my all time hero
