I've never tried Tomb Raider poetry before, but I may have a go. Cool idea

Welcome to my home!
But where's my butler, you ask?
Oh, check the freezer...

Bang, bang
I shoot
Bang, Bang
You're dead

Jump, jump
the pits
Jump, jump
the spikes

I win, I win
I have the treasure
along with me

I suck at this business....

In darkness lay forgotten treasures,
had lain there for centuries and for centuries they would.
Treasures of the great and ancient,
statues, jewellery, weapons and chests full of coins of gold.
But at some point in the future,
in a world so strange, so different to our own,
these centuries would be over
and one woman would take those treasures home.

Hmm. I'll admit this is rather different. But what the heck, why not give it a try:

She leaps, and hops,
Shoots and punches,
She climbs up mountaintops,
And never loses her lunches.

For her name, let it resound,
Is Lara Croft, Tomb Raider.
Travelling the globe all round,
She regains the past's lost treasure.

Without her, Natla would succede,
We'd be biological zombies,
Thralls in the pits of Avalon,
And in big old golden eggs.

So rejoice that we have Lara,
Enjoy her adventures while you can,
For someday sadly,
Cristal Dynamics may not keep making her.

There once was a girl at Croft Manor
Who wasn't that much of a planner.
When she'd go on a trip,
Her assistants would flip,
Until they got scared of Thor's hammer.
