Twas the night before Christmas,
and all through the hall

The Vikings were drinking
and having a ball

Mead and ale flowed like a river
and the visiting seraphs were drunk

When amidst the party two cherubs
made merry with a loud thunk

Oh shit, cried EoJ
look at the blood!

Blood is good,
cried a drunken Viking

The Banhammer was awry
as the two cherubs lay there under

That was what we heard,
said Scipii
Twas Mjolnir, not Thunder

They are dead, dead, dead, EoJ said.
The green was grey, their souls gone away

This is Christmas, said Terikel aloud
No death here, tis not allowed

But the cherubs are gone, cried EoJ
No more cherubs, do you hear what I say?

Cherubs no more, tis true, true true,
I make paint of their blood, which is not blue

We have now two angels among us, cherubs no more
Promotions well earned, for their hard work and much lore

Hail our New Angels, I say to you,
Awesome Eagle, and General Sajaru!

Congratulations chaps.

Terikel, that was a spectacularly terrible poem, most amusing. The rest of you stop kissing his arse.

A belated merry Christmas.

I have no talent in the rhyming ability. So when i see a poem created such as this one, i must admit to being impressed... and envious

The reason lay hidden in verse:
Blood is good,
cried a drunken Viking
Besides, twas all in good fun.
