The Goonies - A Poetic Synopsis
They wanted to stay those kids from the docks. But they just couldn't pay so they fill up each box. Enemy comes causing some static confirming the money gap. Let's look up here in the attic "oh look, a treasure map". So now they set out to find the loot so there's hope. "Are you outta your mind?" As big brother says nope. After they give him the slip it's off to the quest. Their first encounter on the trip? Being the bad guys guests. As they break on through to the tunnel below. Following all the clues hoping it's the right way to go. They thought they found the loot but it's a well full of dreams. Bad guys are now in hot pursuit as the kids begin to scream. But they decide to push on with riches in their eyes. As they look up at the ship they begin to realize. But then the villains show up and make them walk the plank. They make the whole cave blow up as one of the family is thanked. Families are reunited as they tell their tale. They didn't want to be divided. "Hey look is that a sail?" A small sack was presented and it was full of jewels. The heroes were once resented but now don't have to move. Not saying the mission was perfect for this I won't lie. But it was sure enough worth it Because Goonies never say die!
