Regrettably, the Tom Holland I know has been overlooked for the role of Spiderman. I hope to show, using the old Spiderman theme, that he was clearly born for the role.
Does whatever as a historian
Spins a tweet, any size,
Uses history to open eyes
Here comes the Spiderman.
Is he strong?
He’s got vampire blood.
Can he swing into a thread
Then hit a six overhead
There goes the Spiderman.
In the chill of night
At the scene of misinformation
Like a streak of light
He arrives to save the situation
Look out Mr Ansar!
Friendly neighborhood Spiderman
Wealth and fame
His Savile suit is it’s own reward.
Here comes the Spiderman
To him, life is a Roman big bang up
Wherever there’s a Viking hang up
You’ll find the Spiderman.
On a more serious note, there is a poem celebrating Tom’s aim to raise funds for children to be schooled in India. These charitable endeavours: “Never before will rank incompetence have been put to such a noble cause” go by the name of BatAid. Armand D’AnGour penned:
Let us sing of the sound of leather on wood,
As our hero strides out for a cause that is good,
To support orphan children who need to be taught:
From Tom’s bat to the book every pound must be sought!
