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.
