Hero to Zero

LEAP! I take to flight
Survey the rogues of the night
Armed with cosmic might
Criminals tremble in fright
Until they notice my tights

    Wow..."say it ain't so, Joe".:) I know it's not about you, sounds like you'd feel like a dandy. Fishnet tights wouldn't be accomodating either. Now I feel giggy.:)) Best to you and yours, love, Mikki

    I am smiling because I assume you were a super hero, right? I used to dream a lot about flying and floating..never got to know what that meant. My Mama and sister had recently passsed so I figured I just missed them. : ) Best wishes for a win in Michael's "Drea" Contest. Always, Annalise

    Are you familiar with the sixties sitcome "Captain Nice" which starred William Daniels? Your tanka describes him reasonably well.

    No!!!! Not the tights!!!!! Too funny. What made super heros want to wear tights in the first place? - Must be a destraction method. If I were a superhero, I could place handcuffs on them as the rolled on the floor laughing. BulgeMan, to the rescue. Good luck in the contest. Joe
