Silver Service

“Silver Service” celebrates the wonderful Alfred Pennyworth. The iconic character is much more than a butler. Currently, Alfred is back on the big screen. You can read about the Andy Serkis portryal of the character in our review of The Batman (2022). This tribute isn’t just to one “Alfred” actor. We do though pay homage to Michael Caine, who for many gives the definitive depictions of Alfred . . .

 

Silver Service

 

So fatherly, although he’s not,

The guardian of Master Wayne;

the only family Batman’s got,

perhaps the best was Michael Caine? . . .

 

The family butler, but much more,

custodian and loyal friend

who never once stops making sure

that Bruce Wayne’s well-being won’t end

 

He knows Batmsn’s identity,

and who resides beneath the mask

An unending sense of duty

means he’s always up to the task

 

When called upon he’s always there,

and seens to know just what to do;

Wayne Manor’s always in his care,

and so’s the Batcave’s gadgets too

 

Called Pennyworth, but worth much more

The silver service Alfred brings,,

there’s really no accounting for —

he’s wiser than biblical kings!

If you’re an Alfred fan, then you may wel have watched the Pennyworth series. If so, you can read all our thoughts on the awesome show, in our reviews of Pennyworth. It’s a very different (younger and a separate story universe of its own) version of the character, but a fantastic one. We hope you’ve enjoyed “Silver Service”. We’ll see you next all Friday. Thanks for reading, have a great week.
