Once upon a Cyclone Dreary (a WOWS poem)

With my apologies to Poe.


Once upon a cyclone dreary, while I wondered, “would skies cleary?”

Revealing ships I'd never seen before.

As I plodded, mini-mapping, suddenly there came a tapping,

As of if a hailstorm rapping, rapping on my ship's deck floor.

Vis is 8 k – 'tis some lone DD, only this and nothing more.

 

Should I flee, my mind did ponder?

But presently courage grew stronger; hesitating then no longer,

I popped hydro and set out to explore.

Deep into that darkness peering, I sailed there a wondering, fearing,

If torpedoes might not rend me like a carnivore.

 

But the sea remained unbroken, it's stillness gave up ne'er a token.

I asked in chat “has someone seen the ship that was here before?”

Alas, in chat no word was spoken, like they were sleepers not yet woken.

Then from the darkness sprang the dreaded fish that ships abhor.

 

Hard to starboard quickly turning, using all my skill and learning,

performing moves as if I were knight of ancient lore.

An explosion I was dreading but between them I was threading,

Thus I dodged those deadly instruments of war.

 

Suddenly appeared the DD but my guns were primed and ready,

their shells flying straighter than they'd ever flown before.

Would I need another volley? Not at all, by gosh and golly,

Detonation! That red ship would sail on nevermore.

I also approve of Poem. Had good friend Dennis Rodman read while I take out my superior PA ships against whole world by myself.

Snarg, that was cool man. I had read it fast earlier and just had a chance to look back at the forum before loading some ships up for the nights forays. Always enjoy your poems. Well thought out. All the Captains like 'em. Keep it up ok. Good luck tonight if you're setting sail.
