RIP Adam West otherwise known as Batman/ Bruce Wayne ( 19/9/29 - 9/6/17)

Sad news today, as I hear the news that the actor Adam West, best known for his portrayal of Batman/Bruce Wayne in the 1960's Batman series has died peacefully. a personal hero of mine from childhood.West’s career suffered after he was typecast in Batman-like roles after the show ended its 120 episode run in 1968, but he rebounded in later years with voiceover work, most notably playing the mayor of Quahog in Family Guy. West had been battling leukemia for years, although he ultimately lost the battle. He was 88 years old. R.IP.

A Poem for Adam West/Batman
Na na na na na na na na
the man I knew as Batman has gone,
ever so camp but cool
inspiring and iconic,
dashing and charismatic
superhero of Gotham city,
with his sidekick Robin
fought for truth and justice
a caped crusader of peace,
underneath his mask
a human spirit called Adam West,
the joker has  released his last calling card
but this dark knight put up a good fight
went out with a big mighty POW.
