"Captain Mouse and the Big Jungle Rumble" by Devin Marcus
When I was a child, my sister and I would bug him every Saturday night for the next installation of the ongoing adventures of Captain Mouse, the world’s tiniest superhero. But there was always one night’s story that stuck with me into adulthood. It was about Captain Mouse’s trip to the jungle. I learned from Mom that Dad fought in Vietnam a few years later...
"Defender of the weak,
Speaker for the meek,
Captain Mouse! He'll save them all,
If they're big or if they're small.
Captain Mouse! With all his friends
Your favorite story now begins!"
