APED: "Jim Gordon's lot"

beatrice_otter requested a poem about Jim Gordon. With apologies to Gilbert and Sullivan, after the policemen's song in THE PIRATES OF PENZANCE.

Gotham City's not the safest place to visit (place to visit)
The asylum can't keep inmates locked inside (locked inside)
It looks secure, but tell me, really? Is it? (really is it)
If they can't get out, it's 'cause they haven't tried. (haven't tried)
You don't know yet, but you will soon discover (soon discover)
the inmates often go out on the run (on the run)
when one's locked up, the next night springs another (springs another)
So Jim Gordon's lot is not a happy one.
Ah!
When Arkham's inmates go out on the run (on the run)
then Jim Gordon's lot is not a happy one. (happy one.)

When the Riddler isn't busy with his riddling, (with his riddling)
when Two-Face forsakes the crimes he does in twos, (does in twos)
when Mad Hatter's packed up all his kiddy-fiddling, (kiddy-fiddling)
when the Joker's jokes don't ever make the news (make the news)
when Mr. Szasz can't look for limbs to sever (limbs to sever),
the police can eat their donuts in the sun, (in the sun)
but, alas, it seems those days are almost never -- (almost never)
so Jim Gordon's lot is not a happy one.
Ah!
When Arkham's inmates go out on the run (on the run)
then Jim Gordon's lot is not a happy one. (happy one.)
