Food for Thought-Watching Batman


I liked Batman,
and Robin,
each afternoon,
when I came in,
just as soon,
as my bag hit floor,
I sang the theme tune,
put on my utility belt,
to watch the cartoon,
to search for where the Riddler dwelt,
under the couch or in some tomb,
to uncover the riddle of words misspelled,
before my homework impugned.
