On Supermen

We mock, and it is too easy
to peel back confused decades
to lay bare the foolishness
at the root of all gods.

Reverence is always harder
tinged with all a symbol
never was, could have been,
and how no one remembers
anything quite the same.

And for all our sarcasm
who would not want to be
flying so far and free
and never hurt at all.
