Little Johnny whiled away the hours
Reading about the super powers.
He told his sisters and his brothers
He had the power of healing others.
When his mum was busy cooking
He crept up on her when she wasn’t looking.
“I know what is!” He’d say with a yell
“Because I have the power of enhanced smell!”
He told his friends he could see in the dark.
“Trying it out would be such a lark!
Who needs to watch the television?
Life’s much more fun when you have night vision.”
“Better still,” he announced one night
“I’m going to try the power of flight.
It works for my heroes so why not for me?
I’ll test it out just wait and see!”
“I’ll wait till everyone’s in bed
That way will be easier,” he said.
His friends cried that he’d surely die.
But he thought he had the power to fly.
The moral of this little story
Is don’t look for super power and glory.
Jonny was still such a very young lad
And the ending of his life so sad.
