I would much enjoy a reward.

How many times must I play

in order to say I’ve saved the day?

 

Will there be a prize at the end

or a pat on the back by one of my friends?

 

Can we have chocolate or a candied treat

surely, there’s something for averting defeat?

 

I would much enjoy a reward for my time,

something I can pass around that’s not just mine.

 

True, I slayed the beast and came out on top,

it would have taken us all out if I’d stopped.

 

Nevertheless, it was really a team victory,

so how about something to pass around that’s sweet and tasty?

 

Or the next time that we play this game

it’ll be your head I lop off to save the day.
