There are men who act like heroes

Trying to save their bona fide Juliets like absolute Zorros

 

One such blockhead was Drew

His collegemate Cassia he wanted to bill and coo

 

One day, with friends they were in a restaurant

Drew’s rival Nick told him that for Cassia he would taunt

 

Drew treated the matter with scorn

Until Cassia shouted, “Stop, Nick. My heart is so torn.”

 

At that moment, Drew thought in a different way,

“What if I save Curvy Cassie’s day?”

 

Like a thunderbolt, he did move

Like a horse with a slippery groove

 

His quenched hand punched Nick’s wench-man

Breaking fragile tables made of glass, Dear Gwen

 

The restaurant was all helter-skelter

From the plates flying without wings, we had to find shelter

 

Click! Clack! Punch! Crunch! Punch! Punch!

People could no longer, munch, munch, munch

 

Was there no restaurant other, in town?

For his especial, why did he break my restaurant down?

 

I will have to pay back to the people

When I think of the repairs, I might turn purple

 

To my fresh notes, I have to kiss goodbye

To work more shifts, I cannot just try

 

Cassia might be thinking that Drew is her Romeo

But my wife Gwen, she’d high-pitch to me like a broken stereo

 

Why did Romeo wreck my life for a fat chick?

If she were in my chef hat, he’d be her Capulet, I think

 

But, even if they get together or go apart

Drew’s fake heroism broke my restaurant and my heart .


The author's comments:

Many people these days think that if they fight for damsels in distress, they become heroes. But, fighting is not true heroism. If you ever want to be a hero, trust yourself and support the person instead of fighting for that person's attention. Many people face losses due to those people who call themselves 'heroes' and fight. This poem is narrated by a person who faced such a loss. That makes this poem sound like a comedy. But, We must be aware of those losses and we must never fall for the traps of those type of heroes. But, that doesn't mean there are no people with real heroism. We must appreciate the true superheroes of our life.

With that subject, I dedicate this poem to Dad and Mom who are the first of Superheroes and Superheroines in my life. I also dedicate this poem to my Grandparents who passed away, namely Rahmath Appa, Reyal Appa, Shariff Appa and Samma Wapamma. May the Almighty bless them. They were and were mentioned as the true superheros of our family. They would be really happy to see my piece in the Teen Ink Website. I also dedicate this poem to all the readers of Teen Ink.
