Batman and Robin
Yet Robin never gets to save the day
He is never the star
He is the one in the trap
Played to be unskilled, eager, inexperienced
Skill, strategy, planning is what we want from Robin
Used for silly pranks, jokes, and set up lines
Reach to your full potential Boy Wonder
Batman! Holy, let me be the star!
Everyone thinks of the Boy Blunder of Holy this and Holy that
But where were they with Nightwing
Or ‘Death in the Family’ leading to ‘Under the Red Hood’ Robin
Whether trapped in a bell
in the original Batman in ‘The Bookworm Turns’
Robin is never the star
Or tied to a plank balance out by sand
In the ‘Purr-fect Crime’ where he seemingly can do nothing without the Dark Knight
Believe in yourself, Robin!
I’m a fan of the 1960’s Batman
But fed up with the cheesiness of my Boy Wonder
I believe in you Robin
Be a star!
