The Journey to the West

Though we journey to the West We pray to the East More or less that's the way Each day begins and ends It’s a tale everyone ...

In The Dark American Night

A news story I read today
About the Colorado shootings
Ended on a solemn note
Reflecting the full depth
Of this American tragedy

As Warner Brothers
Decided to withhold
Box office numbers
For the Dark Knight
Through this long weekend of grief
Issuing a formal statement that
They will wait until Monday
Out of respect for the victims
And their families

But with respect to
Their shareholders
Please take note
That receipts may not have  
Diminished so much after all
And there's only negligible
Risk of long-term harm
To the Batman franchise
As the Dark Knight will be
Ready rise yet again
Perhaps as soon as
This coming fall
