Dark Knight


It is because Batman
is so human
with no superhuman
just grounded training
and a detectives mind
that we exult him

Like Superman
his alter ego
is not real
Bruce Wayne
or Clark Kent
are only masks
in the public’s eye

It’s what make them
so real to us
Kal-El and Batman
both born out of violence
both taking alter egos
to eschew the truth
away from who they are

Superman even became
the Dark Knight for a time
leaving Wayne as a broken mask
and a final battle years away
between them leaving Kal-El
bloodied, shamed
