Well, it is funny how people 'whore' rocket launchers and shot guns. Some people never learn, eh?

About the three sixty, I never ordered one, and I don't intend to, so, I guess I don't feel the rage of having a preorder being placed on 'backorder.'

Heh. Still nice.

Haha, this was quite enjoyable. It had good humor in it and was entertaining. Keep up the writing. 9.0/10

Nice. Funny thing happened. I preordered mine literally months ago and they put me on the second shipment.

Pissed me off.

Oh sorry! Great poem. Seemed a bit rushed but I still thought it was funny.

I got mine Razz

Good poem, Sev. I like the short, snappy, and funny ones, and this was definitely worth a chuckle Smile

This was funny. I've been to the Smithsonian.

Hehehehe...nice one, Sev.

Though I have heard that early X360s are overheating, crashing, and raiding people's cupboards like no other.

Wow, I've never seen a Halo poem quite like that. I mean, it mentioned the Smithsonian, referenced the Bard (Shakespeare) and even leveled a credible threat towards the Evil Empire (Microsoft) who so cruelly denied you your due--an Xbox 360. Heck, if you had added something about a Moon rock and Cabbage Patch kids, this would have had it all!

Nice job.

Hoy hoy hoy!

I'm feeling the effects of over-eating right now, and its only lunch. Geez, Thanksgiving is nice and all, but the lady here made the turkey too good. It's so juicy and savory that I couldn't stop eating until my belt was threatening to burst. And there's still dinner left...

Thanks, guys. Funny thing: I gave up my pre-order. I gave my $50 coupon-receipt to one of these desperate parents flitting around looking for a spare xbox360. Of course, they paid me fifty for it. I don't give things for free. I just decided that I'll wait before getting it. Or maybe pay for internet connection at home. Who knows?

I like it! But it sounded more like a series of sentences than a poem: ever read Poem at Thirty-Nine by Alice Walker? It's as though you just wrote a few (very good) sentences and pressed Enter randomly.

But it was still pretty good. And funny.

Amazing, Sev - where do you get these ideas?

I wonder too. Maybe he plucks them from thin air.

No, he gets them where all good Halo FF ideas come from: Me. That's unofficial by the way. None of you read that. Now shoo.


Hehe. Indeed. Quite a poem.

Can't say I was not left in wonderment after seeing the title, and now after reading the poem, though I didn't draw all that much a conclusions between the name you pinned upon the piece and the work itself, I find myself at an even greater state of wonderment.

I can's say that the title did not make me wonder upon initially reading over the rather unorthadox phrasing. However, the content of the poem and the effect that it held for me suddenly brought a new light upon the title. As if those things were exactly what were supposed to flow through the mind of those who viewed the text.

There's a Two-Five-ed scenario, too.

That, or you were just talking about what the character felt in a rather wordy manner. Yeah. I'll go with the second answer.


Nice work.

If that's the one where she's questioning her Muse as to just why she writes poems, then yes, I have read it, but if it's not, then I haven't.

As Mr. Cousins so kindly pointed out, I get them from him. Or maybe its a random thing.

I write poems when I need a break from the more depressing things I write about. Like Seven Days, or my Zeitgeist project, or my (impossible) novel, The Recorder. (Yeah, crappy name, that's very tentative. The Recorder's been giving me nightmares, though, and its not even a horror story. I didn't intend it to be, at the very least. Plus, its very hard work-- I put much more effort into it then my fanfiction, and its proving to be a pain.

Again, thanks, everyone.
