A Bunch Of Heroes - Poem by Simon Gowen

You may or may not know this
But the company I keep
Have featured in a film or two
Their services are cheap.

A friend I've known since childhood 
Has a service if you call he...
Will come around and press you clothes
We call him IRON MAN Tony.

For those of you with phobias
Then Peter has a plan
He'll come and clear your house for you
Your friendly Spider man.

If you lie in bed one evening
And above you there's a noise
Then Bruce the local Bat Man
Will come round with the boys.

Clark works with the homeless
They visit him each day
He often gives the Soup a man
Then helps him on his way.

It's not all guys I'll have you know
Diana's dim but hot
Our local Wonder woman
Well she wonders quite a lot

My granddad's also  popular
Computers is his game
My pers'nal Silver Surfer
But I can't reveal his name.

That just leaves me, the sparky
I'll have to catch you later
A woman hasn't paid her bill
I'm off to terminate her.
