Home-lander (Antony Starr), in The Boys, is the series “big bad”. Consequently, you can read about his exploits in our latest episode review of The Boys. Evidently, Antony Starr brings true menacing grit to the character. He’s truly terrifying. As this poem states, he’s a one man army. Whilst he’s evil, Home-lander is an absolutely epic character . . .
Home-lander is an evil force,
of red and white and blue;
at will he destroys all he wants,
a scary one-man wrecking crew
He’s a cold cold-blooded murderer,
and never once regrets his deeds;
He makes the people fear him,
all to ensure his ego feeds
To make sure that The Seven see
that Homelander’s their one true king,
a victim’s picked , then laser eyes
turn them to a burnt offering
If left unchecked he’d turn the world
into a kingdom all his own,
and run the whole Vought Enterprise
all from the comfort of his throne . . .
Homelander’s actions must be stopped,
and it’s The Boys tasked with that role;
So, they can keep the whole world safe,
beating Vought’s big bad is their goal!

Fans of The Boys, will be pleased to hear that “Big Bad” isn’t the first poem from May The Verse Be With You to pay homage to the wonderful series. Previously, we published ‘Billy Butcher and the Boys’. So, you can enjoy that too. Home-lander is an iconic of the modern small screen. So, he deserves homage”. See you next Friday dear readers!
