Tribute

The X-Men
The X-Men from left to right: Storm, Iceman, Rogue, Professor X, Wolverine, Jean Grey, Cyclops

 

 

Smoke and fire, I’m gone
Mr. Catch me if you can
Bamf, I’m behind you.

Sentinel’s R Us
For all the latest mutant
Robot killing toys.

Kiss me I will
Absorb your soul.  I’m not bad
I’m just born that way.

Doctor said I have
A technorganic virus
There a cream for that?

Wolverine was in a
Romantic comedy.
End of the world starts.

Mutant Massacre
Morlocks morlocks everywhere
Removed, like cancer.

Fireworks come out
Of my hands.  July 4th is
My busiest day.

Laser beams come out
Of my eyes.  I need a new
Pair of sunglasses.

I’m intangible
So you cannot cop a feel
I’ve got too much Pryde.

I can read your mind
So please, don’t think of me nude
I’ll tell your mom, punk.

They call me Iceman.
During the summer, I go
To Antarctica.

During puberty
I grew hair and wings.  Gives new
Meaning to “wingman”.

Someone get a mop
And some newspaper.  Beast peed
On the floor again.

When I was a boy
Comic books fed my starving
Imagination.
