Foggy Lake - Poem by Justin Gildow

Sailing across Foggy Lake
On this wooden ship
I can tell I'm not welcome

Fishmen leap up from the water
And land on the ship
Ready to do battle with me

After succeeding in victory over a
couple of battles
I look above me
Seeing many items that can help me
Hanging on the masts

Step by step
One by one
I flip switches to swing and turn the masts
Walking carefully
I grab the many helpful items
Namely weapons and food

Once that's done
I head off to the heart of the ship
Namely the cargo hold
And try to figure out where to go after this

Descending down into the cargo hold
Skeletons greet me, yellow and old
However, I don't think they're in a good mood
to see me
As they set their sights on attacking me

Destroying the skeletons
I find my way into the cargo hold

Fishmen greet me
Ready to do battle
I take them all on
Using my talents of speed and attacking

Once they're defeated
Things begin to quiet
Things begin to be still

And then, suddenly
A sea dragon nearby punches a hole
in the ship
I try to get to the higher level of the cargo
As water is rapidly flooding this ship

Reaching the higher level
With patience
I find an exit

Jumping on a floating piece of wood
I stand back and take in the sight of the ship
sinking and going down

There's no going back now
I can only go forward now
