TROLLS AND TRIBULATIONS by Steve Savage "King of the Beasts"


Oh, I was a hard core gamer, there’s no denying that;
I played Trolls and Tribulations for hours where I sat.
Maddingly, frustratingly, I was on a Roll,
To conquer Level 7, Maze 5 the Final Goal.
My blood pressure rose, my anger flared,
Each time I failed the Level dared.
Years of play, gain by gain, I strived to improve my score;
Overcoming my sticking points, I hit Level 6, Maze 4.
I could feel the final victory; sense it coming my way;
But it was not to be in this lifetime, my reward for years of play.
A house fire took that from me; the game would be no more;
Gone were Trolls and Tribulations and my Commodore 64.
