Once Upon A Time, In Gotham City, (Parody) - Poem by Ryan Brodesser

Now it’s always once upon a crime,

In gotham city,

it’s a big old bad crime ridden corrupt ol place it’s true

but the murders are contagious there

there’re always committed to Blackgate there

loonies are nothing new

Ain't it great the way it all begins

In Gotham city?

corrupt politicians, working for their own ends

Nobody cares who you may have killed yesterday

or if you get mugged and killed along the way

in a city that a desperate vigilant defends

So all you wackos don’t be shy,

bring down the city and let innocents die

the dark knight ain't gonna believe your lies

power is dying to bring you down

cause a dreams no crime

not once upon a time,

yeah, once upon a time, in Gotham city

Poet's Notes about The Poem

I'm not exactly sure what drove me to write this, I've always though this a good song to be parodied. It's kind of dumb, to be honest, but I've always loved marvel and DC comics. The original song, (Once upon a time in New York city, from the Disney movie, Oliver and company,) has 2 more stanzas, but this is still alright. Please read and review!
