"A Hero's Task!"

Epic #11, January 1986 ($0.75)
"This hero is commendable-
In ways incomprehendible-
Perfection is personified by he-
I walk the country aimlessly-
And idolize him shamelessly-
Arcadio, the human symphony!
A peak of true humanity-
Without a pinch of vanity-
He's instant legend, everywhere he goes-
The fools who dare to battle him-
Do not the least bit rattle him-
He wins the admiration of his foes!
A few denounce him zealously-
A clear-cut case of jealously-
Then say his daring deeds, he does not do!
But who could be so glorious?
Who else is so victorious?
It cannot be a simpleton like Groo!"

"Beauty may be a curse, but not as great a curse as stupidity."
