Dark Knight Sonnet

By Dannell Lites

Stone gargoyles are his pillows

In the yawning fastness of the night
Rocky Sentinels guard him from the harshness of the light
Blood and tears are his reward
Gotham's future peace is his accord
Aching, trembling heart for those he fails
Struggling, striving on to victory, he sails
Enshrouding Dark Knight cape he weilds; protectively it billows
