“Ka-Pow”

“It’s good for what it is.”
never meant to be insulting
doesn’t matter much now
when the balloon deflates
childlike wonder turned
to the bitter reality of
human inability to create
capable only of revisions to
previously established monologue
modern adaptations to old tales
my critical eye, cynical ear,
always leaves me as the asshole
