No, I'm not going to explain this one. You have to figure it out for yourself. :)

A scoundrel stood upon the overpass,
His evil laughter could be heard afar -
He took a boulder of surpassing mass,
And dropped it down upon a passing car.

Sounds like a bad guy from a superhero movie... minus the superhero...

I just couldn't resist another verse - it was the image of the boulder about to land on the unsuspecting car, & Laura's mention of superheroes. ;-)

A superhero zoomed down from the sky,
He scooped the boulder up as he flew by.
He hurled it deftly at the scoundrel’s head
Who didn’t feel a thing – but now he’s dead.
