Dark Night

Batman, my son
Don’t fight the dark night
Go to sleep now
Everything is alright

There will always be jokers
And riddles to solve
Don’t lose your sleep
In the morning resolve

Some lovers are poison
Like ivy on the wall
Freezing your heart
Some two-faced and tall

Yet others will purr
Like a catwoman sings
Some cute as the penguins
On a warm day in spring

Dress yourself fine
Unlike a scarecrow
Remove the mad hatter
It’s not your bane you know

“It’s not who you are underneath
It’s what you do that defines you”
You know the truth
And the truth is you.

  1. Love your allusions! Write some more like this - so cool!

  2. Brought back some memories. Nice write.

  3. Great poem and trip back.....I can safely say that your poem had more depth to it than the props ever did in the 60's TV shows....!
