(47) I Am Batman

(47) I Am Batman

A Poem by Chris Smith Welshpoetcs


I patrol in my backyard,
Cruising im my pedal car.
I can see the Joker.
Well, it's really a toy clown;
Locked safely away in the toy shed.

I am looking for Two Face,
A teddybear that my dog ripped.
So my Mum sewed up his face.
But now he is out there, free;
I must track him down.

I search for him in the kitchen,
There I spot the Scarecrow.
It is a puppet, long and thin.
I must stop in my search now,
So I can tackle with my foe.

I put the Scarecrow behind bars.
My search continues, relentless!
I see Two Face hiding in the lounge;
I now creep up, slowly behind him.
I pounce, the battle is long, but I win.

That scarred teddybear is put away,
Where he won't harm anymore toys.
My Batcave awaits, up in my bedroom.
I am sleepy, my eyes are feeling tired.
I am Batman, even I must sleep!

Great fun Chris. You're a natural storyteller. If you haven't already got kids, think this points to you being a good dad.

I remember playing those games! I remember playing with my brother's toys (since he never touches them) and playing good vs evil. It was fun... Good days... I wish I still have those toys so I can play them again... :)

You... my friend... can make anyone smile. I love this poem! It's brilliant and very entertaining. Wonderful! Bravo!

Brings all us overgrown boys back. And even though it's a much longer journey for me than most, I'm so happy I made it.
Sweet, familiar images, slightly hazy with age, portray a time when everything was possible; when fun was the only occupation.
This strikes a true chord, Chris, and may well last longer than all of us.

I can always enjoy a poem referencing comics. I like the short almost disjointed sounding lines, it makes the work feel more like a little kid talking through verse.

Made me thinking of a little kid running around in his underwear with a blanket tied around him as a cape pretending he is Batman. This was a fun read. It was really innocent and the imagery was well thought out. The poem was well written in my opinion and was highly amusing.
