Does Robin Rate?

When Batman saves Robin,
does the winged-man wait to hear some praise?
I doubt that he would be that small–
He’s busy saving lives.

If Robin needed him today,
would he drop his work to come?
Would he put good Robin ahead of you
If you also need his help some?

When Batman decides to help a friend
(and Robin would count as much, no?),
Does Robin rate above the rest–
or is he relegated to wait out the test?

He’d be okay, no doubt, I’m sure
Because he also wants to be
A superhero of whom the world
expects as much as the big man B.

So, here’s the question I ask myself:
Shall I be a friend who needs the help
or aim for Robinhood?
