Reconstructed, I’m Superman

Here I stand

On my land

I’m the man

With a grand plan

Aiming for a longer lifespan

Maybe I’ll out live Tarzan

Even the abominable snowman

I’ll hop on a TV van

Become an honest anchorman

With his winter tan

The escapee of a lifetime ban

And I’ll turn into superman

G'day, and welcome to my blog site. My name is Ivor Steven, I live in Geelong, Australia. I'm an ex-industrial chemist, and a retired plumber, and a former Carer of my wife(Carole), for 30 years, who suffered from severe MS. I Write poetry about those personal thoughts, throughout and beyond my life as a Carer. I've been blogging for over 2 years, and writing poems for 19 years. Of course a lot of my poems are about my favourite subject Carole, but since I've been blogging my writings have become quite varied, humourous, mystical, observational, and even a few monster/horror poems.

      1. Haha..sort of… but my warped sense of humour couldn’t but help but include the greatest white president of our time !!!… hence the references to “I’m the man’
        “Grand plans”
        “TV anchorman”
        “Honesty ??”

    1. Oh, I’m not that man… But I must confess, that my little poem is a double edged, double meaning poem… The nice version is about me… The other version is a satirical comment on the Great white Man, in charge…
      My poem can be read this way
      * I’m the man (Trump)
      * On my land (USA)
      * grand plan ??
      * Tarzan (loud voice)
      * abominable snowman (Trump)
      * TV van (Trump loves TV)
      * honest anchorman ??
      * escapee (Trump)
      * superman (Trump)
      Ivor’s warped sense of humour, sorry about. πŸ˜ŠπŸ™„πŸ€”
