Impromptu Dirge Contest?


You have 15 minutes from time of this post to create a Dirge for a member of MD who is gone (doesn't have to be permanent,  just not active).  It must contain at least 6 lines and be in format.  Post here in forum or in pm to me.  Judges will be Me and Samon




Anni Armor is the prize.  SO hurry and get cracking


*edit* by format, i mean it must be a lamenting song meant for a funeral...definition of dirge sorry for confusion*

Oh TTL, the pipes, the pipes are calling
From glen to glen, and down the mountain side
The summer's gone, and all the flowers are dying
'Tis you, 'tis you must go and I must bide.
But come ye back when desert's in the meadow
Or when necrovion's hushed and dark with shades
'Tis I'll be here in night or in the shadow
Oh TTL, oh TTL, I miss you so.

A gift was given, On the high seas
Crimson pennons encrusted with salt
The blades, the first family
Of a friend now found in final rest.

Many adventures were had, and questors aided
A mind as sharp as the spines upon his back
But amongst the adventures, the greatest of all
Started with a pocket, and some seeds.

Through all the roads, all the lands
We could find you, tending to your friends
But now it is we that tend you, and your roots
We would see you bloom, Awiiya.

Jester's fun-eral dirge

"Let us raise our voices and sing
Of this greatly fallen king.
Pass me another Fat-Tire
The poor sap is still on fire!
Much well loved, though a liar
Let us drink and piss on his pyre!"

Lament to Cutler

Another has gone and left,
a face that none shall ever forget.
I have heard great words about his work.
Though a chance to meet him, I shall not get.

Saddened is the realm at his departure,
but in our hearts he shall always be.
The words I speak cannot bring him back,
but it can help us all to see...

Stories will be told of Cutler,
stories that many will wish to hear.
For he was a friend to many a person,
and those memories...they will be held dear.

Kyphis has been declared the winner.  His Dirge was not only lamentful, but very personal.  Had good line structure, and ya can drink to it.  Congrats on the anni!


Aeos was 2nd.  For not knowing those gone past, Aeos did very well.  Personal as well thrown in about not knowing, very good structure.  Congrats on a bloodpact archer


Everyone else will receive 2 silver for their excellent submissions.  With timed quests like that, its difficult to come up with good material, which is what makes it so special.  Impromptu tends to tell the real feelings of those who put forth their effort.  Good job everyone, and thank you!
