'Why so serious?' He would say as he started to walk my way. He wears a purple over coat, His face as white as a ghost. Always has a smile beaming from ear to ear Laughing like a maniac till his eyes are full of tears Who is this mad man with hair of green he is the creepiest thing I've ever seen He always seems to have a trick up his sleeve Along with many different weapons' like you wouldn't believe Spreading uncontrollable chaos trying to put on a show Committing crimes where ever he goes How did this criminal mastermind come to be? What drove him mad to reach the point of insanity? Some say he fell into a tank of chemicals that drove him insane Others say it was the loss of his wife and unborn child Whatever it was it caused him a lot of pain It seems like he was already unsteady Close to that breaking point, slightly losing his mind already Maybe he was never really okay All it took was a little push over the edge And we got the Joker we have today
