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.”
