"Kid" is a 1992 collection of poems by Simon Armitage. The title poem, "Kid", is written from the point of view of comic book and TV series character Robin, companion of Batman. The poem talks about how Robin has grown up after separating from Batman. It seems to be a poem about growing up, the complexity of relationships between siblings and parents, a student becoming the master and a gradual disillusionment with one's childhood heroes. The light-hearted rhythmic nature of the poem and its central comic stars seem at odds with the slightly darker underlying tone. The poem portrays the bitter tone of Robin as he leaves Batman and reveals the truth about him.
