A Stupid Poem About The Badger-thingy

<div class="IPBDescription">inspired by an unappreciated gorge</div> This is inspired by the post in General Discussion by Umbralla, the Unappreciated Gorge
anyways, here goes...

<b>Ode to the Gorge
The unappreciated badger</b>

Loved by some, picked on by others.
Some even wonder why he bothers?
He shambles through the halls,
transforming juices into organic walls.
Offensive chambers here and defensive chambers there.
The pudgy badger tries the evil humans to snare
in a web of silky strands,
woven by the never resting glands.

Startled by the others whines,
he looks up and reads the lines:
"Where is our last hive?!?"
"We must have it to stay alive!"
Our little hero, keen to please his fellow teammate,
scuttles away, hoping he is not too late.
But, alas, as he feared he was right.
The pesky humans have taken the place with all their might.

With a determined growl for dearly needed help,
the brave gorge will show them he is no whelp.
Cunning webs blanket the floors,
before the men even realize what lurks outside their doors.
Spewing forth chambers at a furious pace
the marines safely monitored by a sensory's gaze.

And when the defences are complete,
every nook and cranny covered by his secrete,
the one-man-army begins his charge,
using chambers as his only targe.
The ferocious badger gives the marines no peace,
as he puts the O in the OC's.
Within minutes, the base is laid to waste,
and the hive is built with all haste.

The cute little bear, having infested all of the map,
decides it is time for a well deserved nap.
In a cocoon he will sleep and grow.
Soon everybody will before him bow.
The remaining humans tremble before the storm.
With a thunderous roar he takes his true form...

    Absolutely. Deepest respect to you. All I can say, as I can't think of anything better.. and have run into similar situations time and time again. Occasionally one particularly intense Gorge is all it takes to bring a team back from zero-Hive to win.

    That. Owned.

    I'm a gorge 95% of the time, and a pretty damn good one, I think. That poem is truly what it means to be a gorge. <!--emo&:D--><img src='http://www.unknownworlds.com/forums/html/emoticons/biggrin.gif' border='0' valign='absmiddle' alt='biggrin.gif'><!--endemo-->
