What? Have you longed to soar through thunderstorms
And smash invading UFOs to bits?
To say the magic password that transforms?
To manifest the Batman’s boundless wits?
Have you longed to give supervillains fits
Just when they’re grasping global domination?
Have you thought that mortality’s the pits
And chafed at mankind’s unexalted station?
Ha! You’ve already gripped your exaltation
And occupied the world of childhood dreams.
You’ve battered down the walls of limitation
And joined the loftiest of superteams.
The spirit in your fierce heart never cowers.
A taste for Justice League grants super powers.
Happy Birthday, 2017!
