"Pigs and Apples"

Epic #9, November 1985 ($0.75)
"Oh tell us, Groo, What have you done?
Your name is very famous.
They say that you're a simpleton,
A total ignoramous.
They say that you have half a mind-
Without the slightest notion.
And any ships you board soon find-
The bottom of the ocean.
They say you know no strategy-
But you can fight all day.
And all you need is weaponry,
Some cheese dip and a fray.
So answer us- We will believe-
And never ever doubt you.
Because you killed the folks, last eve-
Who say these things about you."

"This is the last story without a moral."
