Dr. Zoom

Don’t let his mild-mannered appearance fool you.
Those starchy shirts and silky ties
Will make you think him prim and proper.
Don’t believe it for a moment.
His wire-rimmed spectacles
Reflect your expectations
Back at you.
But you can not see what he sees
Through his modest looking glasses.
His balding head will cause you to assume
A harmlessness common in these days.
But no.
His thoughts race,
Accelerating to the speed of light,
Exploring all regions of time and space.
This is no simple office clerk.
A force of nature is he.
An avatar of the cosmos.
Before you stands Doctor Zoom!

And he demands to know,
“Would you prefer Mexican or Chinese
For lunch today?”
