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!
