Vengeance

4 Oct

The Hulk, when he’s uptight,
lets his anger open wide.
But, often, he is right
to don his greenish hide.

Batman has a grimace,
a pained and sober frown.
He lives to certain justice
for that crazy-evil clown.

King Kong can be tender.
He’s more than a mere beast.
Of feelings he can render
a bit of love, at least.

Monster, man, or animal,
vengeance will bring forth—
now vehement, now brutal—
their horror and their worth.
