Going Bananas to get to Rainbow Road

Nintendo got it right 

We are living on a Grand Prix

We ride around thinking we’re Mario

Navigating our way through our own

Idea of Rainbow Road 

Tipping our hat off to others that we view as Luigi

But end up being Wario or Waluigi

We can’t accept help sometimes and it forces us to our shells, bananas anything that we have at our disposal

And we sabotage ourselves along the way 

All so we can feel the joy of winning what deem as a trophy

That’s when people fail to realize 

It’s not just one race it’s many 

And we separate the strong from the weak

The bowsers from the yoshi

The Peach from the Daisy

Whose ready player one 

And not a player two wannabe 

Thank you countless nights of gaming

I’ve prepared for this
