5 (who?)
The Aspiring mage

There once was an elf on a mission
To be the world's greatest magician.
But his fate; dark and dire
As he played with fire.
Now his urn says: Succesful ignition.

The Unfortunate Debt

An elf in great need sought salvation,
From definite fiscal damnation.
"Arm and leg you may claim,
But three legs? For shame!"
Said the goblin: "I'm sorry, inflation."
Yep. WoW poetry. What is this world coming to?

I've gotten back into WoW a bit, and my latest character is a real charmer. He's a bard, and I admit influence from my course in Welsh literature. His name is shamelessly borrowed from there as well. He is also obnoxiously cheerful, and very emotional when it comes to his instruments. He's a laugh and I love his little pointy ears.

And since he is a bard, I'm writing a few poems for him to recite. Limericks are possibly my absolute favourite form. They are tricky, not so much in the rhyme as the rhythm, though the rhyme has given me some troubles as well.

I loved making them, and now I am sharing them. That second one is for ~PinkCowbell

P.S. There is no category for fan-poetry. I refuse to believe I am the first to do this sort of thing.

You're certainly not the first to write fan-poetry. Deviantart is just really behind the game. But, they always are when it comes to literary works.

Oh, I know I'm not the only one, not on dA either. I thought it was amusing that it was so hard to categorise.

And dA isn't always too friendly on literary works, anyway, which is both understandable and kind of sad.

These are awesome and the punchline to the second one made me laugh out loud in a room full of people who then demanded to know the joke. I HOPE YOU ARE HAPPY

Yes, I am delighted. Ecstatic!

I'm glad the arm and a leg thing works. I had to wrangle it in there in a bit of an awkward position because of the metre, so I'm pleased it still comes across. I mean, I told my mom and she didn't get it but she's not a fluent speaker. :P

Spread the geek-humour.
