OYEZ, OYEZ, pon Achieves Prophethood!

This is where we confer honor on those who have earned the title of Prophet. Or, where we mock them. One or the other.

Oi met a trav'ler frum an antique-loike lund
Wot sed: Two vast an' huge peg legs of stone
Stand in th' desert. Near 'em, in the sand,
'alf sunk, a shattered visage loies, whose frown
An' wrinkled lip, an' sneer o' cold command
Tell wot its sculptur well those passions red
Which yet survive, stamped on dese loifeless tings,
Th' hook wot mocked 'em and the heart wot fed.
An' on th' pedestal these words appear:
"Me title be Pieces o' Nine, queen of queens:
Look on my works, ye Migyt, and desparrr!"
Nuffin' beside remains. Round th' decay
O' that colossal wreck, boundless an' barrr
Th' lone and level sands stretch far away.


..Might be a bit much to fit under her avatar, though.

I don't know if smacking him with a bit of two-by-four counts as 'pining for the fjords' but I'm willing to try it :evilgrin:
