Intro: I wrote this just as a joke, not meant to be taken as a serious idea for an epic poem. To improve the piece I could have described Rick differently, other than just saying "the best trumpet player in the world". I also could improve the invocation by describing the monsters and traps he must overcome in better detail.
O muse, I give an invocation to you:
Rick Zhou, a hero in his time,
the best trumpet player in the world.
Called upon by the wealth from near and far,
to perform at parties and ceremonies.
Rick is commissioned by the king,
to play at his grand ball.
On his way to the ceremony, however,
Rick must overcome many traps and monsters.
Who will help him on his quest;tell me Muse, does Rick make it there alive?
