It is reported that Adam West, who played the original Batman on television in the 1960s, has died aged eighty-eight.
I wonder if perhaps tonight.
You might now all like some respite,
From politics after last week,
So to that end I’ve had a peek,
Right through the papers of today,
But sadly they’ve not much to say,
That won’t be getting on our wicks –
That is the dreaded politics.
The only thing that I could see,
Of interest then to some degree,
Is news that Adam West has died,
A fact that has been verified.
If you don’t know I should point out,
That this actor without a doubt,
Was the first Batman you could see,
In 1960s on TV.
It’s sad that he should pass away,
Just two days prior yesterday,
So Gotham City should take care –
Joker and Penguin are still there!
