De Cervicibus Kryptonianis
(for Larry Maxson)
Only Kryptonians can break the necks
Of other damn Kryptonians – like Zod.
A furious Tyrannosaurus rex
Could never even make Zod shrug – or nod.
No, a Kryptonian is not a god—
But, when it comes to scrapping, he is better.
It’s hard to hurt his solar-powered bod.
You’ll note how thoroughly he fills his sweater.
At super speed, he’s more than a go-getter:
He goes and gets and goes and gets and goes
More times than you can count. Solve for the letter
“K” and you’ll get an answer no geek knows.
That’s why I’m glad that Clark said what-the-heck
And broke the general’s bull-stubborn neck.
