Treasure Island

Superheroes


Everyone seems to want their own superman
Or wonderwoman, but no-one is willing
To be the hero; the one in the spotlight
Saving the world from the villain's killings

If we're not willing to be a hero ourselves
What gives us the right to want one?
Before we ask for a super-villain or hero
We should consider which one we've become

It is very nice to think
The world is full of meat and drink,

In every Christian kind of place.... Read complete »
