Last month, I posted up a contest/giveaway for 2 years' worth of coffee, and that contest/giveaway is now over! To enter the contest, the entrants had to write a poem about coffee, with at least one video game reference in it.
If you have entered any of my contests/giveaways in the past, you know how I usually randomly select the winner; but for those of you that don't know how I select the winner, the images below explain it(you may remember the first two images):
So, who won the contest/giveaway and what was their poem? Let's take a look!
Congratulations to JHardin1112 on winning the 2 years' worth of coffee contest/giveaway!
While many of you, like myself, have a website/blog, JHardin1112 also has his own website dedicated to video game news, mainly Nintendo news. The website he helps operate is NintendoFuse.com(was WiiNintendo).
JHardin1112's poem to enter the contest/giveaway was:
I awaken, all alone in a field,
surrounded by mountains
Defenseless, having no sword nor a shield
What is that I hear?
My ears do they deceive?
Strange music abounds,
Reminiscent of classic, 8-bit sounds.
I look yonder, a cave is what my eyes perceive!
As I approach the entrance I see light from a flame,
Briefly, I am reminded of a magical old game.
Upon entering I see a bearded old man,
standing between two flames with something in his hand.
As I approach, he speaks,
"It is dangerous to go alone. Take this!"
I am jarred by those familiar words
Hesitantly, I reach for the sword.
Then he hits me on the top of my head and
says "Wake up Jeremy, time to get out of bed."
Oh boy, it's Monday morning, back to the grind.
I roll out of bed, and leave my dreams behind.
I step into the kitchen, right up to the pot,
grab a filter, measure out some of the grounds and whatnot.
Then I sit at the table as I wait for my brew,
Flip open my 3DS, to play for a few.
What game you ask? Why Legend of Zelda, of course.
I got it for free as an early adopter, and I have no remorse
For spending 249 plus tax on day two
Now excuse me please as I enjoy some of that brew.
A huge thanks to everybody that participated in the contest, but if you didn't win the drawing, don't lose heart; there may be another announcement in that regards soon!
If you did not enter the contest, but found JHardin1112's poem fun and entertaining, and you would like to read the other entries, you can read all the other poems from the contest HERE!
