POEM ” STAN THE MAN LEE ” by martin gedge

Image may contain: 3 people, outdoor

I marvel at the man
who had the creation in his hand
who laid the very foundations of my youth
who was the mortal in us all
when our backs were to the wall
as we search to fight for justice and the truth
through every flipping page
throwing fury back at rage
it was the coming of the age to see on screen
from the nooks of comic books
all the heroes and the crooks
bring to life imagination and a dream
the magic of the mind
and the madness to unkind
neath the covers of a motion picture light
as a child to rest his head
through the spiders of a thread
I was the mask man in blackness of the night
you could never grasp or clutch
for all the millions that you’ve touched
when hope was biting up against the nails
for you always saved the dame
in this filthy city shame
just before it was to go right off the rails
from a certain life or death
with every gasping of the breath
light would shine into shadows of the dark
and play upon the fear
with a wheel fit to steer
like a train rushing through your cable heart
and though the sadness as it turns
as one candle brightly burns
I stand among the men a human torch
and to the sky I light your way
where the real heroes lay
and darkness is just waiting by the porch…
