I’m going to do things a lot different this year. I’m actually going to post these babies 12 days straight leading up to Christmas. These are my thoughts in verse on 12 moments that I remember love for this generous year.
Without further ado, let’s remember how Mazinkaiser SKL made his grand entrance:
The island threatens to break the Earth,
So you break the island from beneath;
Picking a battlefield for your temporary repose
To arise amidst the chaos in hellfire.
The soldiers have yet to learn your name;
Though many have already perished from your sword, your guns, your knives
That will be drawn soon enough, but not yet.
Your crown lacks its gem, from which the heavens will yield.
A skull shaped gem transforms bat-like from the sky;
Plunging into your crown, the act of which
Lights up your eyes in a flash of blue;
Beacons that signify imminent doom to everyone with the misfortune of seeing it…
Except myself of course, pumping my fists at how this artifact from my infancy in 1970s
Comes to life in animated form a lifetime later.
