The conscience reports:
low wages, high stress and... boo
why even bother?

Pearched on Microsoft,
A new evil joins the cast.
Anti-seraphim?

Seraphim sings:
"Largo to the left of me, Piro to the right,
Here I am, stuck in the middle with Boo..."

Are two great evils to
be released upon Japan?
Ph34r the bat-winged one.

Posting at dawn, she
sees a glimmer of hope
Or is that hellfire?

Does Dom finally
have a conscience? Amoral
becomes true evil?

Micro$oft minion,
sent to capture poor young Ping,
Piro, protect her!

Posted by: Conf Nov 9 2001, 07:30 AM
With lap-top on-line
new haircut, new spectacles
she sits, ponders, hopes

It will get better
thinks Seraphim, but what ho!
Devil-boy draws near!

Plying still waters
two evils aboard a ship
which is the lesser?

Chapter 1

prepare for battle
Angst finding resolution
hope shines down on us

Piro

A job at gamers
Largo has found things to do
She had such sad eyes

Largo

I know who she is
trembling ph34r turns to anger
prepare english test

Kimiko

I'm not that hungry
live the dream or face the facts?
He had such sad eyes

Erika

She's killing herself
She doesn't even see it
like the otaku.

Yuki

That cursed sketchbook
complicated my life
so plain and ugly

Mami

This is too much fun
Yuki chan's madly in love
Ice cream treats for months

Asako

What's going on now?
No one tells me anything
I like Yuki's hair

Ping

No longer lonely
I am the little sister!
helping piro out

Dom

My mission is clear
Abduct Sega's last true hope
Killing Ed a bonus

Ed

I love my new job
The benefits are awesome
Killing Dom a bonus

Junpei
B4k4 N1! C4MP3R!
Junpei is not l33t enough
Consult the master

L33t D00d

Th1s 1s s0 d4mn sw33t
1 4m n0w 1n a h41ku!
R0xx0r y0ur B0xxrz!!!

Miho

How interesting.
gameplay enters my real life
Piro, without breasts?

Seraphim

I want to just cry
A post amongst a hundred
Home office hates us

Boo

I'm gonna get fired
I'm only a temp worker!
Largo is insane!

Mini-evil

MS Courier
These people don't need my help
Japan could be fun

Rowan Bristol

Other Characters
Yuki's Dad, Megumi Chan
Maybe chapter 2?

Rowan writes haiku:
sad eyes turn to laughter now
with her funny lines.

Posted by: Phaedrus Nov 9 2001, 09:34 AM
Bat-winged conscience scowls -
Miho disappointed him.
Kawaii smile? NOOO!

Posted by: The False Hoturi Nov 9 2001, 10:16 AM
With laptop she sat,
wondering, 'My case, a loss?'
A glimmer of hope.

Hmm. I write a Haiku, and the thread stalls. I didn't think it was That bad. Um, it wasn't, right?

(Hears crickets chirping in the background.)

Well, Maybe I caught the tail end of the thread. Oh well, there's always next time!

Hope may be fading,
dark ship on the horizon.
3vil, Japan bound.

[!haiku] the haiku threads have been strangely silent, lately, not-Hoturi. Don't sweat it, it's not a bad poem. Y'know, the thread where I posted my first go at haiku stalled immediately, too. [/!haiku]

Strangely silent here?
Multiplexing poetry.
Look at all the threads!
Parodies of poems and songs,
verse drenched fanfiction story.

Scorpion poet
your fine lines are not ignored.
Tanka or haiku.

(These youngsters up at
2 am, flogging their muse.
Fogies are asleep!)

[edit]
UBB, foolish
Phaedrus. HTML tags
don't work in this place.

From Microsoft the
3vil comes, bound for Japan.
Conscience, or X-Box?

[!haiku]Glad to see some new posts, I was starting to think I scared everyone away! Seriously, It's nice to know that the lack of posts wasn't my poetry, just the time factor.[/!haiku]

Nah, fogies are up
working on a "serious"
parody again.

Nay, a fine effort.
All these "Kimiko verses"
make us more pensive.

And, "Welcome aboard"
and keep writing and posting
because... we say so!

[!haiku]I've been wrestling the shades of Whitman and cumming since Thursday... they are quite the tag team.[/!haiku]

*pokes head in* Mind if I shove in a quick haiku composed for Miho?

new moon set in sky
distant cold light of winter
darkly shining, darkly cute

Anytime is good
for verse devoted to She,
who must be adored
