Blessing in Disguise
“When I had my first ever action figure
He was strong and brave and true.
I would take him everywhere for protection,
Because that’s what superheroes do.
I would tell him all of my secrets,
And he would stand guard over my bed.
It took me months to recover,
When my puppy chewed of his head.
This Christmas I got red action figure,
And he’s shiny and all brand new.
Now he teaches me to protect myself,
Because he says that’s what great heroes do.”
