GAMES OF CHANCE

Sarah has challenged us to select
three names of games from a list
and forge them into a poem.  The
list was such fun I got carried away!

*********************

Doom follows my torchlight
down the Path of Exile
through the myst
peopled with dark souls

Is this my destiny?
Have I signed some assassin’s creed
Or made a deal with Diablo?
I quake at the thought.

God of War, spare me
Lead me to my honey mine
before the Space Invaders
precede me to the Blossom Blast.

  5. Oh that first stanza has you on a dark path indeed! You’ve taken us with you on a journey here for sure.

  6. A very natural blending of the game words, but you had me at "peopled" as a verb. Loved it.
