Poem: Mushroom Men

Simply silly poem composed about fungus people or mushroom men that was inspired by the Myconid race in Dungeons and Dragons.


Myconid by MichaelJaecks


Mushroom Men

Where were the mushroom men
fungal beings in this earth den

cavorting in caves; denizens of the deep
farming in peace; never needing to sleep

left alone and unseen for years
mushroom beings with no known fears

afraid they should have been from mankind
for actions taken we could not rewind

like any unjust foe we struck them down
slaughtering beings and razing their town

In the end they were a myth like any other
anything not like us we would simply smother

-Poem by Justin Germino
