Super's Being Bigger Than Life




Underdog, Mighty Mouse, Super Chicken and Atom Ant
Were grouped beside a makeshift pen outside a smoldering building.
Beside the penned cats, dogs and pigs were caged hamsters, birds, and snakes.
When the press was finished interviewing Superman, Spidey and the Tick
They deigned to talk to the more diminutive humane saviors.
They asked Underdog what he thought of the dog in Strange Brew,
They asked Atom Ant if he'd gone to see Ant Man and the Wasp,
They asked Super Chicken if he'd taken a lickin',
And they asked Mighty Mouse if he'd ever gotten a mickie:
So he hit the reporter in the eye so he'd know what a mouse was all about.
