No longer are William McGonagall's ruinous effects confined to poetry.

This is a fun little piece, with an attractive design and layout, meant to be played multiple times before you can reach 'the good' ending.
It's not difficult; actions are well-clued, and although you'll die several times learning the parameters of the Cave, the deaths are funny and enjoyable.
I really liked the attention to layout and design; this is an easy-to-read Twine.
I had a lot of fun reading this and highly recommend it; the poetry is awful in an endearing way, and packs this short adventure with whimsy and joy.
But a whole lot of fun. Like H.P. Lovecraft meets Dr. Seuss in a Zorkish scenario. Very cool.
