Ode to Picky

Recommended Posts

I've threatened to write this for years, finally I did :P

 

Ode To Picky

 

You came to me one day in a trade

And told me how your old master played

Your friendly smile, your winning laugh

Kept me going when I needed a bath

 

You held my hand while I dug for ore

With your friend excy you found me lots more

You made my fortune grow at a phenomemal rate

More GC than I could use was on my plate

 

One day as I mined I forgot to take care

And you broke on me, no hope for repair

I cried and I wept feeling my loss

When suddenly a messge appeared from my boss

 

"Check your inventory you may have a spare"

The instructions I followed and I found you there

Sparkly and gleaming, completely brand new

My pickaxe was safe, I had a new you!

 

No pick could ever replace you in my heart

But alas as time goes on I need to start

Your fellow pick is balanced very well

When I hit the silver ore it rings like a bell

 

So picky as I write these words thinking of you

I know we'll see each other again, our love is true

In the meantime I'll have fun with another

It may be your sister, your cousin or even your mother!

I think this is good enough for the official poems/song section on the forums. Let's see what Roja thinks :hug:

Hehe, that's a cute poem :) Sure it can be added to the official section, but I think it needs some punctuation? Mainly commas & periods.

Ode To Picky

 

You came to me one day in a trade,

And told me how your old master played.

Your friendly smile, your winning laugh;

Kept me going when I needed a bath.

 

You held my hand while I dug for ore;

With your friend, excy, you found me lots more.

You made my fortune grow at a phenomemal rate;

More GC than I could use was on my plate.

 

One day as I mined, I forgot to take care,

And you broke on me; no hope for repair.

I cried and I wept feeling my loss,

When suddenly a messge appeared from my boss.

 

"Check your inventory, you may have a spare,"

The instructions I followed and I found you there.

Sparkly and gleaming, completely brand new;

My pickaxe was safe, I had a new you!

 

No pick could ever replace you in my heart,

But alas as time goes on I need to start.

Your fellow pick is balanced very well,

When I hit the silver ore it rings like a bell.

 

So, Picky, as I write these words thinking of you,

I know we'll see each other again, our love is true.

In the meantime, I'll have fun with another,

It may be your sister, your cousin or even your mother!
