You’d think it would be the general rule
That anyone with super powers was cool.
But you don’t receive the same kind of acclaim
When your super powers are completely lame.
I mean, some superheroes have the power of flight
Or are super strong and can win any fight.
Some are invisible and sneak around unseen
Some born with the elasto-stretchity gene
But of all super powers I’m stuck with the dregs
All I can do is make all food taste like eggs.
It’s not handy when you have a villain subdued
Unless he detests the taste of all breakfast food.
It’s not a skill of import I can provide,
Though I can switch from either poached, scrambled or fried.
So here I sit sadly on the sidelines, unneeded
My power unhelpful, which I have conceded.
Still I dream of the day in which I am the saver
Of a poor soul threatened by a lack of egg flavor.
