Heroes

In stories heroes are often noted as being
the tallest, strongest
and most dashing
but that is seldom true
as in real life
heroes can be short and fat
with bad personal hygiene
sometimes they can be obnoxious
and at times quite dim
in order to brave until the end
what had made them heroes in the first place
but mostly they are just like you and me
ordinary people
compulsive, befuddled
plagued with personal issues
who don’t know how to use a comb.

The tallest, smartest
and most dashing
make for the best villains
I find.
