Attempts to resolve the Quandary:


The Ballad of Superman:

We lionise the sassy Superman with his beatific smile,

But if the creep comes grinning near us, we should run a mile;

He wears his underpants on top and has a flimsy cape,

He looks the kind of perv who likes to terrorize and rape;

He hangs around phone-boxes, in the shelters at bus-stops,

And if he comes grinning near us, we must surely call the cops;

He's a Super-Duper Hero if you like those kinda things,

But he hangs around the kids and fiddles with their Ding-a-lings,

So if you see that Superman, with Brylcreem in his hair,

And he comes grinning near you, lead the Rozzers to his lair;

Cos he's a Paedo Perv, and you've been warned to tell your Mam,

And Superman or not, she'll blitz his head to Strawb'ry jam!
