(This poem is part of a heroic crown of sonnets. For more information, see "Crown of Chaos, Crown Jewel")
Unless that guy is Batman; that'd be sweet.
That did not start this sonnet very well.
The lack of flow is quite far from discreet,
But legibility can go to hell.
I've never even read a comic book,
except a half-read manga teaching math.
Perhaps some day I'll go and have a look,
But I don't think I'll take that risky path.
Pop culture references are my life
Especially ones I don't understand.
For ev'ry joke I say or write is rife
with cleverest allusions, just as planned
And just as surely as The Doctor lies,
From my own pit I shall attempt to rise.
