I emerge from fallout
cutting a swath through the earth

I need a chemical shower
or I’ll be a danger
to everyone

Do I have superpowers now?
Can I fly?
Do I have the strength
of a hundred men?

I have the strength of a hundred men!
I can lift tanks over my head!
Fear me! Revere me!
I am a god among you!
The radiation hath made me so!

I feel funny
my fingertips are falling off
I’m melting

quick, mop me up
put me in the freezer
in a million years
we might have a cure
