                    Batman, the caped crusader, has now passed
                    Beyond the mortal veil, but shall not die,
                    Since memories of his exploits long will last
                    And all the ravages of time defy.
                    So long as there’s a comic book still stashed
                    In some boy’s attic, and videos of shows
                    Still archived for re-runs, his fame will last
                    As Batman and the Joker come to blows.
                         This curtal sonnet shall memorialize
                         A hero for our youth, both brave and wise.
