Captain America, out for a jog.

Captain America had a friend,
Back during WWII.
That friend’s name was Bucky Barnes,
And he had not seen him in a few.

That’s because Cap thought that Bucky had died
While facing off against the Axis.
That, and the fact that the Captain’s now paying
Twenty-first Century taxes.

You can well then imagine
The Captain’s total surprise
When he meets his friend Bucky Barnes
Killing people with his knives,

The Falcon is winded.

And rifles, and rockets
And hand grenades.
He shoots some good people,
And away he fades.

Bucky has become
A highly-trained
Super solider,
And he’s been so well trained

That he cannot remember
His former self.
He can only remember
His new highly-trained self.

He’s working for HYDRA,
A new Nazi clan,
And the Winter Soldier’s
The new name for this man.

The Captain must try to
Talk to his friend,
And convert him to good,
Or else deliver his end.

The Winter Solider, Bucky Barnes.

Will the Captain be able
To accomplish this task?
Can SHIELD help him?
Dare he even ask?

This was a pretty solid
Series entry.
I’m giving it a five,
And five is plenty.
