Ode to the Collecting Hero

Perseus

A quest from long ago
Search the world
To find the weapons
That will save the day
And bring peace to all
*
Never that simple
With pieces lost
And monsters on the path
Strength is gained
From such a simple hunt
*
The story has remained
Becoming more hands on
The plot of many games
And episodes of toons
Where repetition is allowed
*
Do we collect in real life?
Achieve the degrees
To get the proper job
To gain the house and life
That will stabilize our world

(Okay, this really isn’t an ode.  I think.  Really shouldn’t have made the title before writing the poem.  Oops.)

About Charles Yallowitz

Charles E. Yallowitz was born, raised, and educated in New York. Then he spent a few years in Florida, realized his fear of alligators, and moved back to the Empire State. When he isn't working hard on his epic fantasy stories, Charles can be found cooking or going on whatever adventure his son has planned for the day. 'Legends of Windemere' is his first series, but it certainly won't be his last.
