write a short poem

Postby Leoff » Mon Jul 23, 2018 8:10 am

Hero's Song (After the Quest)
For the PC who has finished all but one task in a video game like Stardew Valley

Nothing remains.
All the battles have been won.
All that was asked of me
I have done.

Only time between
Myself and victory:
No more tasks to do,
Nowhere else to be.

So since I've done
All there is to do,
I'll spend the year
Living here
With you.

This is a great thread idea.

Puppies are fluffy and soft
They dislike when you hold them aloft
They wiggle around
And plead to get down
So you let them and then they run off
Have you found the yellow sign?
Have you found the yellow sign?
Have you found the yellow sign?

Willie was studying math
He felt like a sociopath
He turned on some music
But couldn't excuse it
His numbness, it reddened to wrath

To get him through this work-filled trough he
Decided to make some more coffee
He boiled some water
Stress: his alma mater
And struggled like under Gaddafi


( today was not a great day xP )

No.

I don't see an issue.
