Why yes, I am quite nerdy. Bless you for noticing.

I don’t own any Nintendo characters, bien sûr. If you saw my current car, you’d believe it. I’m just borrowing them for a short poem.

A Song of Smash Brothers

Mario arrives with friends aplenty:
Princesses Peach and Zelda, Luigi,
Fox and Bowser, Captain Falcon, Yoshi,
Donkey Kong and Pikachu, Ness and Link,
And many more besides. All together
They are brawlers in an endless battle.
Hear the players’ call: choose your character.

So I’m trying (and maybe failing) to get iambic pentameter. I think the stresses fall weird here.
Mostly this is an excuse to geek out. Keep an eye out for maybe Dungeons and Dragons poetry in the future. Or Star Wars, or Star Trek, or other awesome things of this nature. You may remember that I enjoy writing about this nerdy stuff.

I heart haiku

You know, the haiku form is a lovely way to narrow one’s focus; seventeen syllables is all you get, so make them count!

I took some inspiration from Sensational Haiku Wednesday for the first one. The prompt was silhouette.
Caution: this post contains nonsense.  You have been warned! 😀

Silhouette of the Jabberwock

After brillig-tide
Headless Jabberwocky’s corpse
Cast a slithy shade.

Many thanks to Lewis Carroll!

But wait! There’s more!


Placement is crucial
One wrong move and the blocks slide
Taking Babel down.

And finally…

Nerd Joy

I reached perfection
Hundred percent completion
Take that, Pokemon.
