"Rhyme nor Reason"

Epic #36, February 1988 ($1.00)
"The answer to this mystery-
Is really quite unruly-
What happened to the lot of us-
(Including, natch, Yours Truly)-
Is Groo has got an amulet-
Which takes us lowly peasants-
And transports us from where we were-
Into his lowly presence-
The amulet is powerful-
It does his ev'ry bidding-
It grants whatever wish he makes-
And trust me, I'm not kidding-
He just wished for his fondest dream-
And made a little slip-
The mindless one has summoned up-
A moutain of cheese dip."

"Just who can handle power is not easy to assess-
And power like that amulet, nobody should possess.
For when they get some magic, no one knows how to behave-
They speak of gold and riches and the power to enslave.
For me, I am contented with the gift I got from Groo-
For all I want is freedom and a song to sing to you."
