Rejoinder to Superman posting

This is an off-the-cuff rejoinder to the Superman Sounds Depressed posting at PuisiPoesy, particularly to Dreamer Idiot's query as to "does this poem just speak only for Superman?"

This poem doesn't just speak for Superman.

It speaks for all the super-fast programmers in the world
who could code and run a program in a single day,
when their project manager has estimated 3 and thinks
if you can do it so easily, she too can do the same,
and in less time.

It speaks for all the super-perceiving students
who stand up in class in a single
bound up from his chair to tell the teacher,
"But, Miss, what you have just written
on the blackboard is not correct. It should be.."
