The strays on the road; We never know how much They have to endure. Homeless they live; The brunt of every season borne stoically. Their bodies hardened to defend, Every virus, disease reduced to irrelevance. Through hunger, thirst, danger thrust on them by speeding vehicles, They live on. Never bitter, Never gloomy, Never looking at humans as enemy. Always ready and waiting to give love, unequivocally. They are the superheroes, Despite the absence of the Cape.
