Ode to the Collecting Hero

Legends of Windemere

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.)
