Re-Post: 13 Ways of Selling Out the Batman

In honor of the new Superman movie

THIRTEEN WAYS OF SELLING OUT THE BATMAN
I
Among twenty snowy mountains,
The only moving thing
Was the pen of the accountant.
II
I was of three minds,
Like a tree
In which there are three stock options.
III
The Batman whirled in the Wall Street winds.
He was a small part of the pantomime.
IV
A super and a hero
Are one.
A super and a hero and a payout
Are one.
V
I do not know which to prefer,
The beauty of merchandise
Or the beauty of endorsements,
The product cashing
Or just after.
VI
Icicles filled the long window
With barbaric glass.
The shadow of the downside
Crossed it, to and fro.
The mood
Traced in the shadow
An inescapable clause.
VII
O thin men of Los A,
Why do you imagine golden birds?
Do you not see how the Batman
Slinks about the feet
Of the starlets around you?
VIII
I know noble accents
And lucid, undeniable profits;
And I know, too,
That the Batman is involved
In what I know.
IX
When the pre-nup flew out of sight,
It marked the edge
Of one of many circles.
X
At the sight of Batman
Flying through a red light,
Even the cops of euphony
Would cry out sharply.
XI
He rode over Connecticut
In a glass coach.
Once, a fear pierced him,
In that he mistook
The shadow of his staff page
For black hoods.
XII
The stock is rising.
The tickets must be flying.
XIII
It was buying all afternoon.
It was rally
And it was going to cash.
The Batman sat
In the cedar throne.
