May The Verse Be With You brings you “Trev”, a tribute to the wonderful Trevor Slattery. Ben Kingsley helped make a truly memorable supporting star! The MCU has quite a few, but Trev is truly special. His latest MCU appearance is in Shang-Chi and The Legend of the Ten Rings (2021), which we reviewed recently. You can still go and see him in cinemas now, so be sure not to miss out!

Trev

 

He terrorised America,

fooled Iron Man so easily –

he called himself “The Mandarin” –

his name is Trevor Slattery!

 

He threatened all with human bombs,

his reputation quickly grew:

but it was just theatrical

although nobody had a clue

 

That persona so hostile,

sunglasses hiding “deathly eyes”;

that voice so dark and menacing;

a truly well-acted disguise

 

Horse-mounted monkeys amazed him,

but he never got to stage school . . .

Outside of acting, his true skill:

without trying he plays the fool!

 

We found out he’s really not bad

and now we love him forever

But not as much as Morris does –

Trevor, Trevor, Trevor, Trevor!

It’s the second week running we’ve run a Marvel themed poem. If you’ve missed it then you can check out last week’s poem, “What If”. There’s certainly much to be inspired from in the MCU and also Marvel comics etc.! However, that’s not all we write about. Indeed, We’ve a very special poem lined up for next week . . . It’s definitely one that you won’t want to miss, dear readers! We’ll see you then!
