Long ago, I had a cat
It was cute, not fat
Cats are bad, people concluded
I concluded that people are deluded
Cat is a person just like me
It feels pain and happiness, you see
It has its thoughts, its needs
It plays, it bites, and it does deeds
Sometimes good, sometimes bad 
Just like human, it becomes sad
But my cat had a personality unique
It often gave me praise or critique
I cannot say if it was healing
My cat was like me, I had a feeling
The knowledge was revealing
Cat wants to enjoy life
Cat wants to have a wife
The only difference, I concluded
Was that I was less confident, less included.

Title of Poem: What the fuck do they know?

Lots wanna hate on the man and the myth,
Pockets are empty but fuck can they diss,
Hiss like a snake that we use for death pits,
Throw a big man in, devour him to bits,
But the reality is he comes back stronger, undead king in this underworld, bow, show your tits,
Give the ring a kiss, gargle his piss, this here is a comeback you'll regret if you miss.

What do they know about being most active member perpetually,
'No lifer it's easy' like they ever met me,
Leave for a half-year they still can't forget me,
Pathetically trying to fill the hole in the site, tryna substitute a nobody for Jet Li,
I'll tell you what it's like to be me, imagine being a Yeti,
I rule the snow and the mountains but some thing it's a myth, others wanna hunt me and nobody at all sets out to protect me,
It's assumed I'm a beast and I'll handle the trolls, I could rip 'em to shreds but it all takes its toll,
I'm tired of bein' here, shit's gettin' old, votebomber and bullies gettin' to walk free, take a stroll,
If Lancelot met me in the flesh we'd see things go different, mano o mano I'm not just a dork he can push over that will roll,
I'm a legend, a warrior, a legend of old, a rebellious son that'll pick up and go and make you regret that you scold,
A guy who can take the scolding but sees the lies that are told,
Sees the scams going on here and will not be bought off or ever have his soul sold.

What the fuck do they know about debating 6 at at time on the reg'lar,
They're nothing but wannabes, they try but can't every do better,
They can mimic the numbers but not the tenacity, can try swim like a dolphin but never stay wetter,
I'm evolved for this climate, I'll stomp you in private and show you the difference between spectator and go-getter,
Oromagi's untouchable, so they have told me, I'll come for his rating, do it better than ever,
I'll be smarter, harder working and whatever the fuck you can say he did well, I'll do like my ass got chili pepper,
I'm dominant in debating, persistent in the forums, even vote and even the showboating 'n' goating I tote like the champion they were meant for,
Fierce and ruthless but controlled and careful to hit the right targets when madman loses temper,
I'll never be settled 'til everyone sees me as the legend they beg for.
