Poem: The Hoofs of the 416
« on: April 01, 2010, 12:51:19 pm »
The Hoofs of the 416
By, Liedt
(From the Boys of the Old Brigade)

Oh, UberHoof, why are you so sad
On this bright April morní
When Hoofer Furs are proud and glad
Of the land that they were born?
Oh, foal, I see in memories few
Of far off distant scenes
When being just a foal like you
I joined the 416.

Where are the furs that stood with me
When history was keen?
Hooftopian dream, I long to see
The hoofs of the 416.

From hills and farms a call to arms
Was heard by one and all.
And from the glen and through the den
To answer Uniterís call.
ĎT wasnít long ago we faced a foe,
The Hoof brigade and me,
And by my side they fought and died
That Hooftopia might be free.

Where are the furs that stood with me
When history was keen?
Hooftopian dream, I long to see
The hoofs of the 416.

And now, my foal, Iíve told you why
On April morní I sigh,
For I recall my comrades all
And dark old days gone by.
I think of horse who fought in force
With courage and with lien
May heaven keep the furs who sleep
From the ranks of the 416.

Where are the furs that stood with me
When history was keen?
Hooftopian dream, I long to see
The hoofs of the 416.

*Invades thread!*
Yargh! I shall counterattack your ungulate propaganda with limmerick

There once was a hooved revolution
Whose message was pure mind polution
When they invaded the boards
We fought hooves with our claws
Eat the hoofers,caus thats the solution!

Listen not to the ungulates slander
it is only false propaganda
They lie through their teeth
think theyre strong when theyre meek
So join the side with limmerick banter! THATS US! *Munches meat!*

*Makes dramatic exit on a strategicly placed rope* Wheeeeeeee!
Dude,where my Furryness?

...Okay, that was good. :D

I must say, though, I harbor deep regret in my heart over the role you have taken against this Revolution. Regret, yes... but also hope. If you were to come with us, we would have so much more to offer you. You could go far in the Hooftopian administration. My own department, the Ministry of Information, would have particular use for a rabbit with such marvelous limerick skills. Some of us here in the Ministry just sit here writing limericks all day; it's what we do.

Stick with the predators, on the other hand, and you will find nothing but tears. You are half-prey yourself, and you look like one of us - don't think the predators won't eat you given half a chance.

Remember your heritage! Remember who you are, and do what's right.

Hold that thought,Ill just tell a joke first...

Ok...What do you get when you paint go-fast stripes on the killer rabbit of Monty Python?
A tigerabbit.

-Silence and crickets chirping-

Youre not laughting,but I will be,when you all realise that neither side has the holy handgrenade of Antioch ;) and thus I can afford to take either side freely.Plus green is an icky colour for forums!

I also regret being on the opposite side to you,but its just the way civil wars go,kin against kin.

I love both of my hybrid halves equally,but I cannot and will not,give up the freedom to be what comes natural,a carnivore,eveeeeeeeeeeeer! *Makes another dramatic exit,this time slamming into the wall* Ouch! *Limps away*

Choky, I think you should create your own threads for your own poetry.  It's kinda sad when you have to invade another thread to post your own work, especially when Liedt has created something this beautiful.  :)

P.S.  I also recognized the original.  :D

That would defeat the point of writing the responce! It was in direct response to this ungulate properganda thread,its not as if it was planned or anything,takes 5 mins to right a limmerick...

I dont even look at this section normally,but this is war!!! :D LOL!

EDIT: By comparison,that would be like making a new separate thread each time you want to reply to someone in a thread.

Hmm, you're right.

I once knew a tigerabbit named Choky!
His long ears were really pokey!
He tried to eat a goat,
It got stuck in his throat.
His death was really low key.

Oh, man, sorry to insinuate your death.  Seriously, no threats meant.  it just rhymed. :o

So Choky walks into a bar.
Says "give me one Hoofer Steak and a cigar."
But in ordering his meat,
He forgets about Liedt,
And gets smote by the Hoof of War.

There once was a Furtopian war
Its manner of conduct quite poor
For in desperate times
and for need of good rhymes
Most of their rhymes were just flawwed

Touchť ;)

For I'm proud to be a Hooftopian!
Where at least I know I'm free!
And I won't forget the cows who died
Who gave that right to me!

Oh, wow... that was sad.  I only changed two words.  I need to practice my poetry skilz. :o

Not too late, never too late. There is always a Revolution being planned and ready to take over Furtopia again and again.
