A World of Warcraft Poem

As a Blood Elf, I am saddened that so few Azerothians seem to appreciate the stunning gaudiness of my people’s capital. So, I wrote a poem – a lament, if you will.

Nobody goes to Silvermoon
That place is such a mess!
The Scar with rubble remains bestrewn
Undead obstruct egress

Nobody goes to Silvermoon
The shops and inns are deserted
Save owners who mockingly laugh in tune
Eviction is somehow averted

Nobody goes to Silvermoon
The Prince of the Sun has died
Leaving behind a government triune
That brainwashes when defied

Nobody goes to Silvermoon
Which is really a terrible shame
Because nobody sees its sparkling festoons
Or the Spire with sunlight aflame

Everyone goes to Orgrimmar
And it’s obvious why, to be frank
The entire city’s a bustling bazaar
With nude chicks catching rays at the bank

I wrote this between 1 and 3 in the morning a couple nights ago, so, as with everything I post, I consider it a rough draft. I’ll probably add a few more verses when the mood strikes and I feel like praising the sparkliness or telling Orgrimmar it’s not as tough as it looks. “OHLOOK we slapped some IRON on our not-structurally-sound huts so now it’s SCARYYYYYYGROWLLLLL! ZUG!!!” W/e, guys.

Life sounds more interesting in rhyme

exhibit A:

On my way home I stopped and picked up some Chinese food.

exhibit B:

Driving down Easton Ave
Listening to Weird Al’s “Eat It”
Rolling down Easton Ave
Weird Al says to eat it
Tummy’s grumbling, better feed it
No time to find an egg or beat it
Easton Ave – it will provide me
Food and I will eat it

Scent of pizza’s in the air
But Tummy wants Chinese
Falafel and Jamaican fare
But Tummy wants Chinese
Sisi don’t like your Cantonese
But I’ve only got my Tum to please
Don’t care about your dialect
My tummy wants Chinese

Following my Tummy’s lead
Going to Noodle Gourmet
Jaywalking in kitten heels
To get to Noodle Gourmet
Don’t have any cash to pay
But the ATMs one store away
Credit card minimum monster strikes
Tonight at Noodle Gourmet

Picking up the menu
What do I wanna chew?
Folding up the menu
Know what I wanna chew
Cookie says try something new
But Taste Buds say the hell with you
California Noodles crunch
They’re what I wanna chew

My life is so boring but I am full. SO FULL.
