He's on the wrong island. There is a realm where outbursts of really bad poetry are common and sometimes expected, especially in the face of daimon diplomats or requests for gold.

I refrained from more detail for fear that he'd actually show up.

Really bad poetry? Ouch. It may be a raw unedited sketch but damn. That one hurt.

You want some bad, crazy poetry? Here's a favorite I wrote after 4 days without sleep.

I stand in the street and look up at the moon,
Which would be pretty fine if it weren't 'round noon:
As I stare at the clouds and imagine the faces,
And name all the voices I hear echoing in my head

I suppose I must mention I'm just slightly off,
Like a blue tangerine or week-old Stroganoff.
As I follow the neighborhood cats all around,
And whisper in silence when no one's around.

I would tell you I'm drunk - but I'm just barely sane,
Mental waves off the Richter scale - to be quite plain.
Its a blast to consider the depth of a mind,
As replete with obsession and madness as mine!

As I prowl through the night with a blade in my hand,
Wondering just how I got this stark !@#$ing mad.
At the world; at myself; at the voice in my head:
At the face in the mirror I want !@#$ing dead,

I digress.

I confess I obsess over seeming alright,
As I groom, in my room, all these thoughts in my head:
As I lay - wrapped and bound - in a blanket in bed,
In my mind, in a thought, in a dream where I'm dead.

All these fragmented concepts among which I swim,
Sanguine horrors, manic-depressive and grim!
I suppose I'll surmise in my poem and prose,
That you've begun but to gradually dip your toes

In the depths of what I would consider the norm,
Commonplace in my world, convoluted and warm!
I inform, its a storm - of a form - in my head,
As I dance through the rain, through the drops I have bled.

As I crawl through the night, on my hands and my knees,
And the whirling wind sings silent songs to the trees;
I lay on the grass, fingering broken leaves,
'Cause I really just have nothing better to do

Late at night when insomnia knocks on the door,
To my heart, to my soul, when I'm out of control;
Where I flee from the nightmares I dread to behold,
When I wish I could cut out the memories cold

I awake in a sweat, shivering and upset,
Guess I dozed, I suppose, for a moment and yet;
Every morning I wake from the maelstrom within,
Just to find I'll descend the abyss yet again

So you see, mon Cherie, why they label me mad,
Its because of these mem'ries I'd rather not keep;
Or these thoughts, never bound by the chains of normality,
Or all of the ticks and strange habits I desperately flee...

I suppose I so often seem cold and composed,
I would hope not to hint at the thoughts I control;
Or the pain that I battle from morning 'til night,
And the soul-burning bloodlust I ache to release

I fight every moment to maintain composure,
I smile while I grimace from social exposure;
I'm really just trying to keep to myself,
Without losing my mind in the process
Pray tell,

Why is it you find yourself sitting right here,
As you march through my brain like you're parting a veil?
Hack away my neurons, the vines Amazonian,
Succulent mental veal saturated in the blood!

Of my friends and my enemies,
Memories plaguing me;
People I love that I wish would stop haunting me,
Words I suppose would be better unsaid

And the hellish nightmares that I flee in my head,

I would hope through these verses you've gained but a glimpse,
Of an unstructured madness I hide deep within;
From myself, from the world, from the ones I hold dear,
From my hopes, and my dreams, and the things that I fear

I assume it'd be best if I wrap all this up,
Like a corpse in a coffin; decayed into mush;
As they say about ashes; to ashes and dust,
And of necrotized limbs one must sever in trust

That such sickness might yet be contained in some form,
In a cradle of clouds, where I bottle the storms;
All the lights are still on, yet in spirit I'm dead,
But there's really - just quite - no one home in my head

Since you so love to criticize my every word, here's one I wrote for an old friend who tried to kill me. Fitting, I think.

"Sacrosanct"

"What are we but living shadows, mere reflections fire-paved,
Of light once found and love now lost, carnal debts we left unpaid

Who are we but simple men, silhouettes who flee the night,
With spirit held in shaking hands, our faith yet shining bright

Where are we my dearest friend, lost in a haze of your creation,
Where were you when needed most, gave in to the mere temptation
of fleeing in that dreaded night, the dagger unsheathed to answer my plight

What a whimsical thought, that a man like you could ever have carried,
But a shadow of doubt, your betrayal left you dead and buried

What a wonder it is, that it lasted so long in light of your lying.
Not a word you spoke yet worth a damn, not a single oath ever meant to be binding.

Try hard as you might - you cannot quench this flame
The sacrosanct submission, division of heedless blame

One would think you'd notice, how the truth does flee your sight,
The facts you bend thus breaking down - if simply out of spite.

Rid me of your "charm", you know - it makes me wonder.
So wrapped in self-inflicted harm, your every word a blunder.

Get the !@#$ out of my face, you sickening disgrace,
Your self-constructed sub-race of filth does stain this place.

You know what - its depressing, I couldn't possibly stress more,
The effects of your deception more tiring than the moans of a menopausal whore.

This game is now over, your hand played and lost:
I bid you farewell, old friend, for the last time I've been crossed."

And with that, I raise a flaming middle finger and depart. Cheers.

So what's new? It going to be six vs. two now? 2 vs. the whole damn island? Bunch of insecure whiny bedwetters getting their knickers in a twist over a war hundreds, maybe even thousands, of miles from their nearest border. Just leave us alone and let us tread in the skulls of these inbred goat fiddlers already! We're doing you a favor here, cleaning up East Island's gene pool. :P Seriously, if you just let us fight our 3 vs. 1.5 war to completion you'll find we make good neighbors, if these last three had just left us alone and kept their nose out of our business I have little doubt we would be three rebellions in by now.

Considering that we're just barely keeping Caligus out of this, and the Vix/Perdan duo are showing hints of wanting to attack us (Vix just declared neutrality), not to mention that our economy was demolished by a portal stone incident and has just now recovered to its previous state. Yeah, I'd say we ARE feeling the pressure a bit.

Yes, it may be 28 vs. 19 (Fallangard is functionally involved in name only), but we have outside influences keeping us from just sweeping Perleone, crushing Semall, and burning the Black City. You really think Itorunt is maintaining 10k CS militia, a raiding party, AND staving off starvation, with only the city, without outside aid of some sort? If it were simply 3 vs. 1 it'd be over already. :p

While I love and appreciate the patriotism, Xavax was never going to steamroll Alara. Itorunt alone has half as many people as all of Xavax (Current poplutarion is 50k vs 91k). in fact, Alara actually had MORE citizens before Xavax took 3/5 of their regions. When you only have to split that gold 6 or 7 ways, that is a whole lot of money, and Minas Nova has enough rurals to feed them forever.

Propaganda-wise we make out Perleone to be some big financial backer, but we've no way to verify and Alara may not actually have NEEDED financial backing.

This was never supposed to be easy, but at least it hasn't been dull!

Yeah now try Oligarch's situation, 58 vs 16, but you don't hear us complaining ooc. IC for sure, but OOC I know that with the way I've played Garas we could have seen this coming. Xavax is exactly the same story, although your odds are still far better. I mean once we started beating Sirion 1 vs 1 I should've known better to expect others to jump in and because Garas had been an ass to Perdan/Vix before (not letting them join the internal conflict) there was only one option :-)

In addition, keeping 10k militia and a small raiding party is easily maintained with one city. Don't forget that once you're down to 1 city your taxes can go up like crazy. We could keep up 40k forces in Oligarch city while still making some tax income next to it.
