Rookie (Mbeya)

Hero


She looks at me
Looks at me every day,
She looks at me with lusty eyes.
She thinks I am a hero
Kind of hero
She’s been longing for
The hero of her heart

She’s seen heroes
Bogus heroes
Fake heroes
False heroes
Fantasy heroes
Muscular heroes
And heroes of heroes

I am a real hero
One she’s never seen
Her eyes can’t see
Anything remarkable in me
Her senses can’t feel
Anything unique in me
But her heart
Her uncompromising heart
Has fallen for me

There! little girl; don't cry!
They have broken your doll, I know;
And your tea-set blue,
And your play-house, too,
Are things of the long ago;
