Valentine’s Day Poetry Slam Contest Winner
Love was definitely in the air within the Raptr Community! With over 100 entries, you sure made this one tough on us. After many whispered sweet nothings, chocolates, and butterflies, congrats to Cptkush for coloring in the hearts of gamers!
Here’s his poem of love to his beloved Zelda:
Rupees are red, green and blue.
Why do I always have to go save you?
All I want to do is fish
Or maybe cook up a Cucco dish.
The Hero of Time has things to do.
And unfortunately one of those things isn’t you.
So I’ll go save the world again;
Let evil fear my blade.
But princess I promise you this,
Someday I will get laid.
