Why So Serious

He was known as the Clown Prince of Crime;
A deranged goofy madman
His laugh is in my head nearly all the time
Both his laugh and smile have become

The legend of both DC Comics and Hollywood
Whether he is portrayed by the likes of Jack Nicholson, Cesar Romero,
Mark Hamill or the late Heath Ledger
He was and still is Batman’s all-time greatest foe

His arsenal of weapons tells it all:
The laughing gas or the acid-filled flower
But he was not the kind of villain
Who just wanted money or power

He just wanted to watch the world burn
He and Batman seem to always do the dance
Of fighting each other in every comic book, every turn,
Or every Hollywood movie

His early life before wearing the make up
Has become very mysterious
But the Joker’s popularity increased
When Heath Ledger asked one mob boss: “Why so serious?”
