Poem of the Day: Superman

He can fly
You can't
He can stop bullets
They kill you
He saves the day and gets the girl
You're quite fortunate if you can get the girl
He has x-ray vision
You need glasses
He stands for truth, justice and the American way
You think those are all just great
He fights the good fight
You fight the urge
He is a perfect physical specimen
You are a bit of a slob
He's an American icon
You're Generation X
Ok. So I guess you're not Superman.
But you are real.
