Viking Call

i think i have writer’s BLOCK

venturing into the unknown 

all alone

i roam

into a desert biome

oh no, what is that i see?

a husk staring back at me

unequipped, no weapon in sight

we all know who’s going to win this fight

i respawn

at the crack of dawn

i wander into a cave

hoping it won’t become my grave

i’ve been mining for a while

mining diamonds is quite a trial

i search for a village

that i can pillage

aha! success

God bless

i raid the villagers’ chests

nobody protests

inside i find many treasures

one of them brings me the greatest of pleasures

i grab the iron armor

sucks for that farmer

to make things worse for him

i eat his crops till’ i’m filled to the brim

just for fun, i give him a punch

i better hide before the iron golem makes me his lunch

the sun has set

this is a day i will not soon forget

now it’s time to go to bed

before the monsters chop off my head
