Image for the poem the first X gene

the first X gene

 
 
 
 
 
I ran every Tuesday to  
my neighbour kids house  
just to watch that show  
about the mutants

the theme song was  
and still excites me  
the ringtone I edited  
myself on a Nokia 3310  
 
but I never knew the  
man behind the men  
Stan Lee the creator  
the old guy in cool shades  
 
then in my adulthood  
I learned about  
the man behind the  
legacy he made  
 
I remember when  
he was asked  
what would be his  
superpower  
 
he said it's "luck"  
not a cool one  
but without it,  
the game is over  
 
but he will not stop  
inspiring more  
for generations  
to generations...  
 
they will fall in love
with the heroes and villains
as we did in our time
still admiring his creations
