For the End Credits Challenge: Scenes in Poetry, by RoverGirl



In a world of danger and disaster,

Where threats come over loud and clear.

The pain of missions.

The need to succeed.

Angels flying wing to wing.

Captain Scarlet on the edge of life,

One false move,

And down he goes...



In a swamp Scarlet jumped at a snake,

By accident and fell in a lake.

It was green and it stank,

And it was really quite rank,

So Scarlet yelled out for a break.



Captain Scarlet has had many a fall,

Some of them from buildings quite tall.

He once broke his neck,

Has even fell off a deck.

But this time he'll hit urban sprawl.



Seatbelts are there to save lives.

But Scarlet did something unwise.

He ignored the clear rule,

And made such a fool.

He fell out the car to demise.



The spikes on the walls were to kill him,

And pierce everyone of his limb.

So Scarlet cried out,

“Please Blue help me out'

“Or please call my next of kin”.



Scarlet went onto a film set.

Looking for an agent who was brunette.

But he was hit from above,

By wooden crates given a shove.

By a Trekkie who called herself Bernadette.



Scarlet upset a tribe and all tied.

Not his fault but he got tried.

Sentenced to death.

He took a deep breath,

As a Cobra was unleashed at his side.



Scarlet did not like big bangs.

He'd rather take on big fangs.

As the dynamite hissed,

He tried and he missed.

And knew he had a date with the med gangs.



Scarlet made a big vow,

Learn to drive as up until now.

He'd not noticed his driving,

Was as bad as his diving.

Driving the tank on remote he had now!



Sharks had never tickled Scarlet's fancy,

Working with them he thought too chancey.

Marine Biology really not his thing,

But it came back with a sting.

Well sharp teeth and his survival looks glancy.



The warehouse decided to catch fire.

After Scarlet called the Mysteron a liar.

He tripped over a beam,

Got petrol on a seam,

And now he looks set to expire...
