Like the ever eluding ebb of tide;
The gradual graying of the once yellowed sun
The plot is cheating my notions
‘Tis is beating my imagination
Who knew Chloe will fall for Greenarrow, her cousin’s ex?
And Lois having eyes for nerd clark kent – her ex’s best
Lana becomes the superhuman she fantasized
Not knowing a huge prize tag’s stealthily attached;
Never to be with him, save in her dreams & thoughts
As though it’s true that one’s worse enemy could turn a fond ally
Ominously-machinated Brainiac turns a new leaf
He teleports to the future of Clark Kent/Kal-el
The brain-sucking thing joins the Legend sect
And returned to the present from the said future
Lessoned him to tame his fears and murder his doubts
To realize man’s the architect of his fate
That Loiz wouldn’t deter, even if she knows
He is some freaky alien;
A cosmos traveler feigning farmboy
The clock chimes 1:00am, this is the last episode of the season
Next season, on my mind!
Shall I go borrowing? From where at such an hour?
My next-door neighbor only consume ‘igbowood’ films
And Uche doesn’t run 24-hours service?
Omilord! Hope is standing aloof
To my bed and dampy pillow, then, I must go
This phase of the story hits an end
But another plants seed of thought in my mind
There exist something about heroes,
Smartfingers, Merlin, Kyle-XY, Seeker, jumong
And all legends that graced my laptop’s screen
They do it for the most altruistic of reasons
Not for fame,
Egotistic motives
or personal glory
So stoic and selfless they are!
Alas! Even at that,
Forever, an unfinished project; they remain
Some sort of work-in-progress!

  1. Smallville. A story that never ends!

  2. You write well.
    But I was missing from that your list of heroes. So, rewrite!

    1. Thanks, as in, me putting my name there, or what sir?

      1. Put my name in there juo! See this guy O°˚˚˚!
        You write a list of heroes and you forgot to put The Kaycee??
        *shaking my head*

  3. Stopped watching Smalllville after the first season. They changed too much of Superman’s story for me to be comfortable with…and then the thing began to stretch UNREASONABLY. Still…I cannot begrudge another for his love.

    Not bad.

  4. Smartfingers, are you a hero then? And how do you deserve to be listed then? :)

  5. Pardon my ego Ħ̀́̀́̀ǻ̀́dħ̀́̀́ɐ̀́̀́̀́=Dħ̀́̀́̀ǻ̀́ħ̀́̀́ɐ̀́̀́̀́=ħ̀́̀́ǻ̀́ħ̀́ heee! But on a serious note, I firmly believe ♈̷̴̩‎O̶̲̥̅̊U̶̲̥̅̊ don’t have τ̅☺ βε̲̣̣̣̥ hulky, bionic or freaky τ̅☺ βε̲̣̣̣̥ a hero, any1 who affect lives positively I̶̲̥̅̊s̶̲̥̅̊ a hero!
