skiffy doggerel!  
This is what I've been doing instead of everything I should be doing, today.  (Once I've done some of it I should have a Real post, too...)
It's really elsmi 's fault for challenging me into turning it into a sonnet.

Anyone recognize references? (I'd be very amused to hear which ones if so)!

I've crossed the ice field bright and hard as death,
I've played the game that's never just a game
I've faced the spider, called on Elbereth,
and learned the shadow-wizard shares my name.

I've taken tea with kindly Mr. Long,
I broke a chocolate pot to stop a fiend
I fought the queen of elfland, song for song
and saved my love from her unholy teind.

I've been transformed -- a villain to a tree;
the serpent's daughter, wind, a harp of bone,
a hybrid alien, the changeling sea,
a dada girl, a troll turned into stone.

And I've been hope -- to win a game in hell
by claiming all may yet be very well.
