"The Plague"

Groo 25th Anniversary Special, September 2007 ($5.95) (Dark Horse Comics)

A most intriguing enterprise was guaranteed to fail-
When Granny got the notion she could offer...
Groo for sale."

"The moral of this story is an easy one to heed
For children should be uninvolved in acts of naked greed.
And as for Groo, he's older now and we can see he's got
