I held a little candlelight memorial for Urf performing a ballad I wrote:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hzugtcy8QLM

Here's the lyrics:

"Urf"

The greatest of all manatees
Oh the humanity
You came for epic win
Now you're lycan second skin
The noblest of sea cows
With chaingun wielding know how
Armed to the teeth and water bound
We'd no idea the champ we'd found

He went to fight that fateful day
With spatula held high
The gleam of which could not contest
The bravery in his eyes
Fish in hand, unwavering, at what shot out the brush
The thought of what had found him there
Men's nightmares cannot touch

A splash rang out in Runeterra
That shook us to the bones
The day our fabled hero fell
and sorrow took it's toll

We called him...
Urf the Manatee (x4)

If ever we meet him again
On a spectral watery road
Joy will find our countenance
Basked in his heart of gold
Come now one and all and listen
The moral comes to this
Of all the legends here to stay
They all need a friend

Urf the Manatee (x4)

Thanks for a great game, Riot

We summoners pretend ourselves gods. We quarrel and fight petty battles, taking for granted the champions who give their lives to serve us. Perhaps this was for the best. Sometimes it takes a death to wake us up to the reality of our actions. These actions have consequences, and we can no longer ignore them. We are not gods, and if there is a god, we do not deserve his mercy. For my fallen brother Urf I have but this simple poem to offer.

The Ballad of Urf the Manatee

It is oft held true
‘Bout beasts of the sea
That none ever was greater
Than the great manatee

A peaceable race
As peace must there be
If not for man’s greed
Might still they be free

Listen now as I tell
Of their warrior Urf
Champion of justice
God king of the surf

His people lamented
Line drawn in the sand
As the cries rang out clear
Urf took fish in hand

“So be it” said Urf
“This is how it must be”
Then he spoke in sweet rhyme
Pattern ABCB

“For man and for beast
For those that can not
So others won’t have to
I cast in my lot”

With all hope and valor
He entered the fray,
Bled out much like cattle
Tossed simply away

His people still captive
Frail peace left undone
No hope on horizon
Lest Urf had a son

Now the legend survives
By the sirens who sing
The great king is dead
Long live the king

Urf, my friend:
A pitiful end.

Swimming along the Summoner's Rift,
A measly chore at most;
Now through sand one must sift
To find your remains along the coast.

What is it about you I most love?
Is it the machine gun rounds?
Perhaps the reason is far above
Any logical grounds.

Urf, the manatee:
A legend to me.

Your legacy of leadership,
Your spatula and gun:
The few things you'd equip
To see injustice undone.

A sea of tears you held at bay
Wash over us in grief.
We wish you were here today:
Your time with us was brief.

Urf, my friend:
We'll meet in the end.

Heres my tribute to Urf.
I have a picture in my possession of what brought the demise of the beloved Urf.

It was not enough
The might of your spatula
Sleep softly, splash splash

I have composed a haiku in memory of this majestic beast, which we hardly knew.

*ahem*

Urf was a sea cow.
Warwick was very hungry.
Now he's not. Nom, Nom.

And now a moment of silence please.
