FINAL BATTLE By Edgar, age 10

Each time Mario  jumped on Bowser’s head

his neck stiffened
and thickened.
His eyes bulged.
His tail grew fatter and
sliced through the air.

He retched sparks

and  heaved fireballs
at Mario.
He jumped
and the
fireball hit the ground
and bounced back
at Bowser.
Mario stole the key from the air
and unlocked the cage.
“Thank you, Mario,” Princess Toadstool said,
and hugged him.
