The scene with the Walker closest to my heart
Has got to be that Wellker who wasn't all that smart
Stuck down there for a while, completely unfeared
But surely making the water taste weird
During a rescue attempt, he lost his whole bottom part

Is your limerick on National Limerick Day better than mine?
No complaints from me, that's honestly just fine
I'll give you until Monday, 12 UTC to get your rhyming straight
Then reward my favorite limericks with 50 Summer Tokens and 4000 crate
And every participant will get a new badge to shine

    I doubt there's anyone here making such good limericks that they're worth 4000 gold

    Capibara <Dead Stalkers>

    Amidst the ruins of the world, Where death and decay had unfurled, A capybara, strong and bold, Stood firm against the zombie horde.

    With teeth that gnashed and claws that tore, The zombies came, but they knew not what for, For the capybara, swift and quick, Was not an easy foe to trick.

    With each attack, the capybara fought, Using all the strength it had brought, And though the zombies swarmed around, The capybara held its ground.

    For hours it fought, with teeth and tail, Its courage never seeming to fail, And when the battle was finally won, The capybara stood, the only one.

    And so it is, that in this world, Where death and decay have unfurled, We remember the capybara's might, And how it fought the zombie fight.



    "Always be yourself unless you can be a capybara. Then always be a capybara".

    The zombies will come and eat us all,

    Together we must stand, fierce and tall,

    To slay those fuckers,

    And not be suckers,

    So let’s blow some radios on the weekend call!

    AN ODE TO GIRL POWER

    There once was a band of girls,

    Who said we’re not just clutching our pearls,

    We are the baddest baddies around,

    With our power we will astound!

    So GIRL POWER became their words!

    A PREVIEW OF THINGS TO COME

    Then cried the men but what about us?

    Oh, please, stop making such a fuss!

    There will be something for you,

    We have thought this through,

    Very soon you will no longer need to cuss!



    (and no, it will not be men power)

    Dear Deca games the fence bug in your game

    How many times do  I have to complain

    All you do is avoid the blame

    But it's always the same

    I've just been attacked through the fence again

    This bug is driving me insane

    Will you please just fix this game

    I've got money to burn

    It's right there for you to earn

    But you never learn

    I'm grabbed through the fence again

    This bug is so lame

    No matter how much we complain 

    The outcome is always the same

    Clotheslined through the fence

    More gold at my expense 

    Don't you dare delete

    I'll be right back with a repeat 

    Now I may sound bold

    But give me my 4000 gold



    We have a winner, pay him the 4k gold.

    I entered a contest of rhyme

    Which hardly took any time

    I don’t think I’ll win

    But at least I’ll be in

    And I’d love a new badge to shine

    That's not a limerick, unfortunately. Other than that the text was really cool and funny et cetera

    There once was a zombie so slow,
    Whose friends were all starting to go,
    He said with a frown,
    "I just can't keep them down,
    It's hard being the last to be 'no'."

    But then came a man with a gun,
    Who thought zombies were really quite fun,
    He aimed and he shot,
    And gave it his lot,
    But the zombie just said, "That's a pun!"

    So the zombie got up and he danced,
    With a wiggle and a shake he advanced,
    The man was confused,
    He was so bemused,
    That he ran off and was never seen again.

    There once was a sheriff called Rick,

    whose world turned apocalyptic.

    He beat all the odds,

    killing zombies and sods.

    And then pulled off a vanishing trick

    There once was a bruiser called Negan.

    Everyone wanted to be him.

    With Lucille as his shtick,

    he was a real prick.

    And, for Glenn’s sake, cannot be forgiven.

    DECA brought in a guy named Jeroen,

    who’s seen that we all like to moan.

    He takes lots of stick,

    but he isn’t a dick.

    And he runs the game all on his own!

    If I win, I’d thank you kindly if there be whiskey in those crates 🥃😃

    Title: Ballad of Glenn Rhee

    Rhee was good, Rhee was gold
    I didn't wanna leave you, Maggie
    I didn't wanna die
    Started to cry, but then remembered

    I should have kept my helmet on
    Write my name on it
    Talk to Maggie for hours
    Tell her things she'd understand

    I didn't want to leave you, Maggie
    I didn't wanna fight
    Blame it on Abraham
    Started to cry my eyes out, but then remembered

    Why they call me Popeye...

    Lyrics can be sung to the song Flowers by Miley Cyrus

    There was a bully named Negan
    Who beat and butchered like a heathen
    But he turned a new leaf
    Suffered in grief
    Now he's off to show Maggie the new Negan

    Even though The Walking Dead show has ended.
     
    We keep playing NML's with the ones we've friended.
     
    Having so much time and effort invested.
     
    And although Guild Wars is still being beta-tested.

    We stay to reach goals that to many, are uncomprehended.

    Auntie Carol’s a beauty Starbound

    Bolt racks in an API round

    Her target selected 

    Your defense unprotected 

    And now they lie flat on the ground.


    Coup de’ grace and always cross mapping

    In your face and straight double tapping

    You thought you brought your DR

    But got smoked from afar 

    And oh look all your Toons are dirt napping

    Yeah we might schedule that a bit better :D My bad. That said, you should have a week to claim your prizes so we can still give you the Summer tokens and we will ^_^. 

    Also, please tell me your in-game name/guild so I can mark you valid for the prizes

    loving it. I now feel like a dick for telling you my name rhymes with 'moon' rather than 'moan', but I'm gonna put it on my fridge anyway xD yay

    Badged it with the beautiful walker I was rhyming about myself :3 Thanks for participating!

    - I think not everyone knows what a Limerick is, but I rewarded all poems anyway. My bad for not explaining it better :D 
    - Summer Tokens are still sent, you have a week to claim the rewards anyway
    - Still quite some good ones :o Great to see your creative side <3

    It's all good. You can badge me, that will be sufficient enough. I already have millions of TG crates so I don't think I need a few more anytime soon. Gift them to a random player😂
