May the Verse Be With You: Billy Butcher and The Boys

We honour Billy Butcher (Karl Urban) and the gang, who go up against the dreaded Homelander (Anthony Starr).
Billy Butcher

As soon as The Boys hit Amazon, it was destined to be a modern classic. A briliant, brutal, biting satire, The Boys turned the super hero genre on its head.  We honour Billy Butcher (Karl Urban) and the gang, who go up against the dreaded Homelander (Anthony Starr).

 

Billy Butcher and The Boys

 

It’s Billy Butcher and The Boys

who try to stop Homelander’s rule

They must rely on many ploys,

like Frenchie’s clever techy toys

 

They bravely fight with just bare hands,

to bring the corporate evil down

Nobody better understands

the danger when Homelander lands

 

They hatch plans secretly, to show

the public Voight’s terrible ways,

and how they’ve come to grow and grow;

there’s so much danger they can’t know

 

If Homelander just hears one noise,

that psycho from Vaught Industries,

the next thing that he destroys –

it’s just Billy Butcher and The Boys!
