On Meeting A Hero

I met a hero yesterday
In silver, bronze and polished gold,
Just back from spending time away,
From doing all that he was told,
By donkeys bred at public schools,
The playing fields of Eton's mess.
Our hero followed gilded fools,
A pawn in Britain's game of chess.
His Captain said, 'that man must die! '
And so our hero takes a life,
For his was not to reason why,
Nor tend the lonely, weeping wife,
Who wondered why her choking love
Was sacrificed to free a dove.

The Loafers As Heroes In The Cinema And The Goodmen Villains

The fact is this that the loafers act as heroes
In the cinema
Whereas the good men as villains,
which but we know it not
That the heroes not heroes,
But girl-lovers, drinkers, characterless
Poor-family fellows
Parting in other men produced
And financed films,
the drama company boys and girls
Whereas the good men are engaged otherwise
To act as dreaded villains,
Dons and bosses,
Who are actually not,
But they turn other men's sons
Into villains.

A Tribute To Dad

When kids my age were searching for
Heroes, the likes of Roy Rodgers,
Gene Autry, Hoppy and John Wayne
I already had my idol.
A hero is supposed to be
Courageous and strong and favored
By god. This description aptly
fit father then as a youngster
And today on this special day.
And when he died some years ago
A light was extinguished within
My soul leaving a darkened void
Where once my action hero, dad
Was surely the best of them all.

Silent Heroes

Today, super heroes are as popular as ever
They seem unlimited, smart, indestructible
With superpowers and minds oh, so clever
Everyone looks to them in times of trouble

Unseen and unheard stands the silent hero
An every-man, with no desire to stand out
A man who wields no knife, sword or bow
A caring man, who’s not just another echo

Rock-steady, intent on caring for his family
Personal, communal or on a global scale
A great man to those that value integrity
Who believe their champion cannot fail

Super-men are just a string of empty zeroes
What we need today are more silent heroes
