Gygax and Freud

Gygax, like Freud, had an imperfect gauge

To plumb the depths of what makes people whole

Insights, approximations, paradigms,

To map the contours of the human soul.

We have an id! We have charisma too,

A superego, also int and wis,

If we remember they're schematics still,

Hints of the depths of what there really is,

Then both these models can be used to grasp

For all their silliness and limitations

And the complexities of human minds

What humans are, in different lives and stations.

I welcome tools that help us know ourselves

And keep us straight from orcs and dwarves and elves.
