Gotham Archives #2

Time has passed, and so have heroes
Streets throng with villains on death rows
The fall of Gotham, a city apart.
Killing is a work of art!
Says the Joker, clown prince of crime
His terror demands neither a dame nor dime!
The evil laughter haunts us in sleep
Struck at the heart of Gotham, so deep!
Harvey Dent, the man of the hour!
A white knight in grey armour!
For he did lose his mind and soul
When he lost his love; his goal
focused on ruining one and all!
Two-face, they called him after his downfall!
All hope is lost, cried James Gordon
The police commissioner as he did cordon
Off Arkham, a hell like none other
That tortured and killed his insane brother!
Aye! The misery dragged on and on,
Until that day, at the light of dawn
A bat symbol arose above the skyline
For the hero had returned to draw the line
And send the evils back to their shells.

To light those hearts where hope dwells,
Of a beautiful Gotham, free and just
The dark knight's return is a must!

Gotham Archives #1

It was a cold damp night
As Gotham bore the storm's might!
The streets, so scary and full
of thugs, drugs and wild bulls!
A car stops at the hotel, so royal!
Out comes the Roman, in a bid to foil
the mutiny within. For that bastard Maroni,
shall now taste the wrath of Don Falcone!
Guns ablaze, the Italians swore!
Meanwhile, the comedian was a total bore!
At the Penguin's nest, such a misnomer!
The joker was abducted in a Hummer.
And dumped in a pile of toxic waste
Disfigured face, beaten up in haste!
The long-nosed Penguin was ever so happy
Gotham was his, and so was the mutt Flappy!
Peer through the glass, did the Cat indeed!
She eyed his ring, a thief's greed
But Selina Kyle wasn't an ordinary robber
An artist with her cats, facing a mobber?
Alas! That's Gotham, a city in ruin!
Cried the crazy Harley Quinn
Convicted of felony, declared insane!
Sent to Arkham Asylum, where she met Bane!
The Latino terrorist with a evil mask!
A killer with just one task!
The orders came from the Demon himself!
At Nanda Parbat, within his shelf,
lay the formula for the neurotoxin
That spread fear, the Scarecrow's deadly sin!
The League of Shadows, rises strong!
Eradicating evil for centuries long
Gotham is their target now.
Burn it to ashes, did the League vow!
The darkness rises all around
Creeping slowly without a sound
What the police and government can't do
Is win this war, and start anew!
