There dwells a fiersome Koopa
In castle dark and dank.
His hide as tough as iron nails;
His body built like tank.

He lives with but one purpose;
That's to rule the Mushroom Land
And overcome those plumbers
To have Kingdom under hand.

Now out from his toothy mouth
Comes forth a burst of flame!
Bellowed from him horrid roar-
The King, he spoke his name.


"Bowser, I am!  Crafty king!
Cunning moreso than
Those plumbers dressed in red and green.
They'll NEVER foil my plans!"


And off he sent his children,
The seven Koopa kids.
Over seven lands they scattered
For those plumbers they're to rid.

And one by one the children failed
To hold those brothers back.
Now it won't be much longer
'til the two get sweet payback.

Up the castle steps they went,
They took them two by two,
To prevail over the Koopa king,
Those brothers, friends true blue.


"Bowser, I am!  Crafty king!
Never will they win!
So smart am I, so fiendish, too!"
And cue that toothy grin.


A fiersome, violent battle!
The pair against the king!
They fought together valiantly,
Those plumbers red and green...


So fell the mighty king,
So fell that mighty Koopa king.
Um, this is the Bowser Ballad. I wrote it for some folks in literary magazine in high school. The teacher really liked it too, but there's that whole copyright thing where I couldn't include Bowser. XD

Soooo, I was going to change it to a red knight and a green knight fighting a horrendous dragon, hoping that someone out there would understand the underlying Mario joke, but that really didn't pan out, so I ended up drawing the lit mag's cover art instead of submitting my poetry based on video games. XD

It's about... a year old, so definitely not my best. However, I do hope you enjoy it, and its crap different scheme ending. :P I thought it was delicious. XD Also, still have it categorized under humor, because that's what it really is, but I like to think of it as an epic battle between good and e- yeah, humor. XD



AAAALSO, uploading this was WAAAY too difficult, all things considered. Joining the bandwagon, WTF is this new submission layout? :O

Bowser, Mario, Luigi, Koopa Kids, Mushroom Kingdom, etc.! (c) Nintendo and not me. <3

I have waited patiently for a Bowser game for years. He is DUE his own game, darn it!

I know, I wanted him to win so bad, but my hand didn't let me write it. XD

There should be a Bowser game! And he can beat up on Wario if we need him to win. Obviously, people would be all up-in-arms if he kicked Mario's ass...but I'd like for him to kick Mario's butt...just Mario's, 'cause Luigi is bad-ass.

I love where you can play the side of the "bad guys". It's really cool to get the other side of the story.

Nobody likes Wario! That definitely works.

(Actually, I'm sure a lot of people like Wario, and I need to put this here so that no one calls me a "hater" XD)
