Three Mario Haiku Poems By Donovan Burton

The “Beautiful” Mushroom Kingdom

Towering castles,

crystal clear lakes, lush green hills –

and man-eating plants?

The Mario Party Comes to an End

No one dares to breathe.

Stars are counted, fingers crossed…

and… I lost again.

Six Year Old Me Battles Bowser

A fresh leap of faith

towards the fearsome koopa –

another life lost.
