Evil Science

 

 

(for Jonathan Adams)

 

 

On track to be an evil scientist?
Jonathan Adams: that’s the way to go!
At Captain Superhuman shake a fist
linked to a brain that’s truly in the know.
He thinks that you’re an extra in his show–
so prove him wrong. Yes: him and all his kind!
Let him be famous only as your foe!
Crude matter must be governed by the mind.
Once this whole hero thing is redefined,
you’ll beat that big dumb boy scout black and blue.
He’ll have to play the bit part he’s assigned–
as long as you, in charge, allow him to.
Your final scheme will crush him like an ant.
Don’t let your critics tell you that you can’t.

 

 

–Tom Riley
