Poem For A True Hero

Poem By Charles Chaim Wax

The Mighty Atom
strode into Meng’s
to show off his considerable
feats of strength made more remarkable
because this was his 98th year of life
having been around
in the heyday of Coney Island
appearing at the original Luna Park
and Dreamworld
also he toured Europe
and traveled across the country
but now he stayed home
in a small apartment
on Mermaid Avenue.
Sadly, the Coney Island of his youth—
yet not so
The Mighty Atom.

This little tale of the Mighty Atom has all the elements of a novel in a few lines. Nice work.
