Thanks Mario (Video Game Poem)

By LunaRoseAngel

The words that escaped his fungus crowned head
Cut a pathway through my hopes
Like a green turtle shell through a field of ripened mushrooms.

All of my efforts to this point have been in vain!
The blood spilt, the fire thrown, for nothing!
Through shadowy pipes; I knew not where they'd take me!
Into the ocean deep; the tentacled fiends I have faced!

All for motives known well throughout the land:
My quest to rescue the Princess, seized from her home,
Clawed away. King Koopa in the scaly flesh.
No one knows why, save for infinite wickedness, he took her.

I would know, were I met by her.
But my arrival is greeted by a hand who, plucking my hopes as a turnip,
Replaces my cheerfulness with emasculating disbelief.
I have mistaken?
I am sent away again?

I've spent years leaping over shroom and beast,
Scourges of the Mushroom Kingdom flattened under my boot.
Every challenger destroyed makes my conscience cry out
"They may have families! You create orphans!
Little fire-shooting plant-children begging for food"

They would be the only lives that need be taken,
After raising the victory flag up high on its post,
If I were not met with an ersatz conclusion.
A dumpy diapered servant to the Princess,
Giddy with freedom, yet sneering at my plight,
Revealing I have killed and been killed merely to hear:

"Thank you Mario! But our princess is in another castle!"

Re: Thanks Mario (Video Game Poem)

That is the saddest poem about an NES video game I have ever heard. Bravado.

Thank you Ninja next year there should be a category for the awards for best writer I think I would win that one with my experience with writing stories.
