Want to be the Squire of Old Market?!

Post by Queen » Wed Nov 19, 2014 5:16 am

The flyer was printed out in bold black text on a neon-pink paper posted on the bulletin in the Arena.

It wasn't my idea but most of my ideas involve one man or violence so I decided to go with it. The sword is a mighty weapon that has changed the course of fate as well as condemned those who could not wield it with the utmost respect, or perhaps they were just too slow. Well I heard once while eavesdropping on Shadow (just kidding (not!) ) that a pen is mightier than a sword. I first thought he meant you could conceal a pen much easier and stab someone in the throat or eye with it- which is still true mind you! However I have come to learn through some diligent studying that instead it means that not everything in life can be solved with a sword. So if you are interested in becoming my Squire there are three easy steps. 1) Write me a haiku explaining why you should be my Squire. 2) Post that haiku on the board so that I may read it and everyone else may as well (your pen should be as bold as your sword- fearless!). 3) If no one participates you can simply ask me the next time you see me and it'll probably be yours for the taking.

Baroness of Old Market,
Hope

Shortly after the announcement was made, a few pieces of perpetually damp sheets of paper were pinned to the board. The small witch may have been slightly overzealous and creepy, but the pen was bold as requested!

You want a squire?
Hi, my name is Misery.
I like company.

The wrath of my staff
Requires strength and guidance.
And I need a job.

I sing when I sleep.
Sometimes bad luck follows me.
But I accept it.

So I ask you now:
Pick me and you will not fear,
I do not cry much.

Hope and Misery
Are linked and go hand in hand
Forever and always~

Glasses, jacket shirt
Spitting hot fire, beware
I'm not a rapper

Squireship? Just check this
Misery loves company?
Best move out the way

Hi, It's Michi here
The greatest best girl, all day
Accept nothing less

Blue hair, Pedigree
My dad? A bully? Ha Ha
Please turn from the screen

A godlike aura
Muscle to make you sore-a
Like your mom when I'm through-a

That's not five you know
But rules? Those are for suckers
Breakers get things done

So hand the weapon,
over to someone like me
Because Misery?

Lick up this venom
This sting? Yeah, it's all for you
Go exit - stage right

GET LIKE ME

MIC DROP
PEACE

I am not creepy.
I just hang out with the dead.
Since no one else will.

Will you be my friend?
We can paint each other's nails.
And then do our hair.

Hey, you, Misery
It's time to cut you a break
Tea party, my place

Don't bring dead bodies
Because I like to keep clean
PSYCH, your tears fuel me.

Did I make you mad?
All in good fun, Michi said
Let's have a party

Addie the pizza
Misery's place, the local
and I bring the drinks

But no boys allowed
Girls night only, so stay out
Unless you are hot

Blue hair? Brown Hair? Sad?
I'm still the best in the world.
But pizza sounds good.

I accept and like tea.
Wait --are you picking on me?
Why are you so mean?

You will stub your toe
and get lots of paper cuts.
And have no band-aids.

For Addie I will
Leave a video to watch.
Would you like to see?

Yes, I like pizza.
The dead don't like to get out.
Party at my place?

But as a warning
Lightening sometimes can strike me.
It doesn't hurt. Much.

All this haikuing
Is making me way hungry
Party at ten then

Can G be a squire?
Can G come to the party?
Michi, I'm puzzled

What does a squire do?
I don't know why we're fighting
Give peace a chance yo
