The Legend of Relámpago

I’m going to tell you a story about a masked avenger,
Faster than Zorro and more agile than a luchador,
He fought for those who couldn’t defend themselves,
I’m talking about the one and only – Relámpago!

He had been a lawyer and a local sheriff,
In a small quaint town just north of Mexico,
And one day after the mafia couldn’t buy him,
They killed his family with one harsh blow.

His family’s funeral took place on a rainy day,
Even then the mafia would still not let go,
He was attacked in the middle of their burial,
And left for dead under the storm’s shadow.

As he laid there dying he swore an oath,
To avenge his family and everyone in the pueblo,
Just then a bolt of lightning brought him back,
With a new found strength and name – Relámpago!

He struck fear in the hearts of evil men,
Seeking justice for average Jose (or Joe),
And when he’d catch his killers in fear they would say:
Es el diablo! To which he replied: No Relámpago!

He was lightning fast with punches and spin moves,
Evading their knives and daggers anything they’d throw,
And legend has it that he could even dodge bullets,
Adding to the fame and therefore the name – Relámpago!

Folklore says that when he walked into a cantina,
He would order a glass of agua fresca made from aloe,
Anyone who didn’t want to die would then clear the room,
Because the man in the mask was the legendary Relámpago!
