A short story about a father from his 10-year-old daughter's view

'M'onotonically depressed for not having a dad,

with superpowers like her comic hero's.

'Y'oung Meera, a 10 years old girl upsets herself.

'F'ancied by all those playthings bought by mom,

who also happens to stay with her all day.

'A'nnoyed by dad's late arrivals every night

and who pretends false activeness near her.

'T'ender heart of Meera began to shatter those

heroic fantasies about her father.

'H'ellish fire broke-out on a peaceful night burning their home to ashes,

fortunately, everyone was rescued

'E'xcept for that little pet dog of Meera which was trapped deep,

where even the firefighters stumbled to jump in.

'R'unning "out of the ashes, Arose a hero" carrying the dog in one hand and fire on the other.

Now Meera understood how truly a hero her father is.
