As The Skies Parted:

As the clouds in the skies parted and fire rained to the earth
The soft keening of the voices trapped within the abyss
resounded throughout the empty plains, as the world prepared itself
to meet a fate no worse than complete and utter oblivion.

The waters turned red with blood and bubbled with a poisonous brew
Whilst the creatures of the mountains, mutated into vicious monstrocities
A pall of darkness, settled around the Earth like a cloak of shadows
and in its grip we knew the true fury of a God gone mad.

Hundreds were slain by the rocks that pummelled the ground
As they fell from the heavens like burning stars of rage and anger
Thousands more fell to the plagues unleashed upon the people;
For famine and sickness claimed far more than the flame and stone...

All this, was contained within a magical snowglobe
A special artifact presented to the crew-member named Reaper
On a special day known as his birthday...

It was a gift from the Captain, forged with the magic of the nether
It would remind him of his home in the abyss whenever he longed for it
And so, as he presented him with this gift, the pirate Chenbeard
slapped the Reaper across the back and grinned as he said:

"Aye, happy birthday lad, here's a globe of suffering, made it meself!"

-Chen Yuan Wen, 28th June 2012

P.S. Happy birthday to Forgotten-Reaper
Dedicated to :iconforgotten-reaper: heard it was your brithday through :iconsutsuki-sensei:. She has also informed me of several others coming up.

Don't worry, I will make a poem for EVERYONE. Why? Because I'm Chenbeard tha Pirate =P.

I may not personally remember birthdays, but :iconlyrajolt: and :iconsutsuki-sensei: are the two whom I count upon to remind me such events :3.

So thank ye all and I hope this was an enjoyable and humourous read :3

Also HAPPY BIRTHDAY REAPER!

-Captain Chenbeard of the Black Fedora Pirates :iconwordofchen:
