An Acrostic Poem

Someone saved a life tonight.
Unknown was the one who hid from sight.
Police questioned all who stood around,
Everyone looked, but no one was found.
Reporters wanted the victim’s take,
He couldn’t point out the hero to make.
Evaporated into the night,
Reward not required so the hero took flight.
Others may bask in the hero’s glory,
Except the Samaritan of this story.
Superheroes hide away, to save again another day.

Good poem. Well-structured, and a good take on superheroes; those not looking for glory or attention (or money). Wish there were more of them around.
