Mario and Luigi: The Untold Story

(Submitted to Heather's Famous Couples/Duos contest. I hope you all like!)  :)

“Save me, Mario & Luigi!”

As they both read the Princess’ distress call,
Written in dark cherry lipstick on his walls
“Mama-Mia, I just painted this damn thing”, Luigi whined.

They ride off into smiling clouds’ horizon
Knocking out hopeless Goombas & misunderstood Turtle shells
Rapidly exhaled hustles over flagpoles and grassy valleys
To see who will capture her 1st kiss...and NOTHING MORE

Towards that immense castle in the sky,
They climbed against its walls like two dogs in heat for the 1st time

Into un-screened window archways, they dive in
Their eyes stare threateningly against the Dinosaur-Lizard cross-breed reject

Mario & Luigi begin dropping mushrooms to see stars and taste invincibility.

But, like this battle, it only lasted 10 seconds!

For out from the Onyx darkness, a new hero emerged
Green, not with envy, but of Greek god magnificence
And a strut that would make a pole dancer jealous

He struck down with such brute force, tearing down the gates of Heaven & Hell
Jesus & Lucifer were pissed

It was Yoshi the dinosaur!

With one fell swoop & a high pitched Braveheart-style cry,
He starts dropping eggs like he’s been ovulating for days
Tossing them with such focus & epic awesomeness against his enemies
Knocking them down one by one

He gracefully sweeps up the Princess, staring down towards his enemies
In a condescendingly lifted face, places an old-school Boombox on the ground
With loud decibels of MJ’s “Don’t stop ‘til you get enough!”,
Yoshi pulls out & drops the mic, embracing gravity’s last word

The Princess devilishly smiles at her new green hero and rides him into the sunset.

Game over.

    Hi, Shirley!!! :) How awesome to read this!!! I still play it, quite proudly, today. You're very welcome! I'm happy you stopped by!

    Omg, I absolutely love Yoshi! How did you know he was my favorite of all time in the Mario series? This poem was so zany and bizarre... but that's what I loved about it. Did you ever realize that the whole story is basically a love triangle between Peach, Mario & Bowser? They play it off all dramatic-like, but that's really honestly all it is... going to my faves, this one!

    HAHA! I had no clue. :) "Zany", "Bizarre"...damn, it's like you're understand me! Definitely a love triangle! Funny enough, I have a t-shirt of Mario, Luigi, & Peach. Mario's arms are around Peach, while her hands are holding Luigi's behind Mario's back. It's utterly classic. Thanks so much, Tim!
