'From where did he come, this one called Max?' everyone did ask,
To get him to appear today indeed was no small task.
All admired his physique, from head to feet amazing!
Gentlemen and ladies alike, eyebrows he was raising.

Much talk there was about him though he did nothing shameful, nor noble,
The looks, the whispers, and the expressions you wouldn't believe if I told you.
And too, without 'Jack' to support him, and neither the 'Old Man,'
He soon appeared in dire need of one or two big fans.

He kept his poise for hours, and then all began to wane,
Not his countenance, nor his physique, was Max able to maintain.
Perhaps someone forgot a true Superstar was to make its presence,
A spectacle Max was to be, but not the day's whole essence.

Besides he was cold, proud in form, and really had no feelings,
And no one engaged him in questionings, for they knew he would be unyielding.

From deep and bitter isolation he came, you see, so to be in the light,
In time proved to be the undoing of Max, perhaps he would have done better at night.

(1)What is Max?
(2)Who are 'Jack' 'The Old Man' and the 'Superstar'?
