Batpoem

By Adrian Henri
(for Bob Kane and The Almost Blues)

Take me back to Gotham City
Batman
Take me where the girls are pretty
Batman
All those damsels in distress
Half-undressed or even less
The BatPill makes’em all say Yes
Batman

Help us out in Vietnam
Batman
Help us drop that BatNapalm
Batman
Help us bomb those jungle towns
Spreading pain and death around
Coke ‘n’ Candy wins them round
Batman

Help us smash the Vietcong
Batman
Help us show them that they’re wrong
Batman
Help us spread democracy
Get them high on LSD
Make them just like you and me
Batman

Show me what I have to do
Batman
‘Cause I want to be like you
Batman
Flash your Batsign over Lime Street
Batmobiles down every crimestreet
Happy Batday that’s when I’ll meet
Batman.

I'm a retired journalist who still has stories to tell. This seems to be a good place to tell them.
