    Default An ode to SFTS

    So back a few months ago I made a bet with Strike about the results of the Presidential election in the state of Pennsylvania. I said if Clinton won the state, he would have to make a thread about how great I am, and I would do the same if Trump won the state. So in the end Trump won the state and I am a man of my word so here goes:

    "Oh how we should bask in the glory that is Strike!
    All those naysayers should consider taking a hike.
    For the one from Texas bears knowledge others do not possess,
    A level of wisdom that I do not have I must confess.
    He is a fantastic and wondrous being who we should all strive to emulate,
    Since he is the one who said that the Keystone State would vote to make America great (again)."

    Cheers Strike, hope you liked my horrible attempt at poetry.

    Still and quiet feline form,
    in the sun, asleep and warm.
    His tail is limp, his
    whiskers pooped.
    Man, what could make this cat so pooped?
    My tiger, it seems, is running 'round nude.
    This fur coat must have made him perspire.
    It lies on the floor - should this be construed
    As a permanent change of attire?
    Perhaps he considers its colors passe,
    or maybe it fit him too snug
    Will he want it back? Should I put it away?
    Or use it here as a rug?
    and so on.

    If Obama had passed the healthcare reform he wanted, this wouldn't have happened. I miss him already.
    There, but for the grace of God, goes John Bradford

    My aim, then, was to whip the rebels, to humble their pride, to follow them to their inmost recesses, and make them fear and dread us. Fear is the beginning of wisdom.

    I am tired and sick of war. Its glory is all moonshine. It is only those who have neither fired a shot nor heard the shrieks and groans of the wounded who cry aloud for blood, for vengeance, for desolation.

    Does this homage to SFTS allow for humorous limericks at Hooah's expense?

    "Strike's wrong," quipped bold Hooahguy,
    As he wagered his pride on the fly.
    Strike took that rash bet,
    said "You'll be lauding me yet,"
    And Strike was proved right, by-and-by.

    With banstick bold Hooah' doth threaten
    Then meekly behaves like a kitten.
    Since he plays at both sides,
    his political wit drys,
    and by Strike's prediction was beaten

    In praise of Strike
    Who's immortal form and glinting eye
    Cause the Gods themselves
    In envy to sigh

    Raise him aloft
    And mark him well

    You also violated a maxim.
