Ray Girvan

Two people, man and wife, of dignity,
In Gotham City, a much troubled town,
Fell foul of fearful criminality:
Upon the street they were so cruel gunned down.
From forth the fatal loins of this poor pair
When grown a costumed fighter springs to life;
A wily man in guise of bat who there
Takes arms against the wicked crime so rife.
By day an idle playboy millionaire
Is how he simply seems to public sight
But when the signal shines in frosty air,
He drives forth from his secret cave at night.
When Batman dives like doom from rooftops near,
O Riddler, Joker, Penguin: all know fear!
