April 18, 2017 – Death (or life) poem

Superheroes eventually get old,
their powers slowly fade,
they die and get replaced
by newer versions of themselves.

But you never actually see that
in comic books or on Netflix,
where the superheroes are young
and acrobatically strong forever.

In season 2, Daredevil reunites
with a brunette, masked girlfriend,
and Matt, his alter-ego,
dates the blond secretary
who has her own secrets.

Is he a blind two-timer
or a very sick schizophrenic?
What will he tell the priest
at his next confession?
