This great actor is quite stunning
He can captivate and be cunning.
In his movies one must be drawn in
With his gripping stare and sinister grin
The way in which his roles are styled
Are often crazy or rather wild.
He can be funny and also grave,
And the films of his I always crave.
A role for which he won an award
Was of a man in a psychiatric ward.
And he plays a madman in The Shining,
With dark intent and maligning.
The evil Joker he has also played,
For who's wicked deeds Batman put paid.
Another of his roles was as the devil
One in which he seemed to revel.
Great Jack is such an enthralling actor
With each quality he has being a factor
Few others shall be quite as skilled
And his boots shall not again be filled.
