FLANNIGAN

Flanagan was a lady’s man

When morning arrived, I conceded the point

For in his words I found wisdom.

Something was amiss with him

With gun and hat and knife

But he would be the hero

When they saw just what he did

Taking down the robber, yep

******************

Up and over, around and through

Buildings, forests and seas

Apparently, nothing that I couldn’t do

Soaring along with ease

*******************

Yet all good things must come to an end

As I tumbled back down to the ground

Disassembled was I after flying so high

Jerked awake in my bed I was found
