Ode to Urf,



The ocean air flows over Summoner’s Rift,
cold, unfeeling.
As I breathe it in it carves a void yet colder in my guts,
emptiness replaces my heart, purposelessness floods my head,

For every day that you are not with us,
that it was your great providence to be,
a piece of myself is lost,
in the cold, unfeeling void inside me…

That void that consumes me,
and becomes me,
angry, confused, hopeless?

There is no sound of happiness,
no more revels, no more cheer
only infinite, awkward silence,
that spreads through Runaterra on the cold, ocean air.

And in that silence I reflect,
on your days not lived, your passing so early
on your love not given, and caresses not felt,
on your laughter hushed, and your tears dried up…

The more I think,
the more my thoughts surrender
and melt away,
asphalt of my agony
not quite yet
but soon enough

Oh, Urf, noble manatee,
Brave warrior whose spatula,
Should have swept the spawns of evil
away from Runaterra.

But instead it was evil personified which, merciless,
swept your life away…
One, quick hungering strike,
and so much you were denied, so much life you were deprived of…

Life is being killed by Krathus’ ult, feeling impotent,
life is sitting in the matchmaking queue, feeling impatient,
life is drinking health potions, feeling relieved,
life is being chased across the field of justice, feeling weary,
life is reviving after 70 seconds in late game, feeling dizzy,
life getting killed, feeling humiliated,
life is getting kills, feeling godlike…

And while cold, unfeeling emptiness consumes my gut,
reminding me of the void that stands where your noble destiny once did,
of how a cold slab of stone on your grave
does no justice to the warmth and love you stood for in life,
a perhaps foolish hope, is harbored within my soul

That perhaps, in the short time you had,
despite being denied the fiery paroxysm maelstrom that is life,
you managed, on your young, innocent own,
to find true bliss, true happiness,

for happiness is standing on a random lane,
looking at the sunset over Summoner’s Rift’s river,
and suddenly the world shuts down around you
and suddenly its just you,
staring at the fading sun,
not caring what the future, or lack thereof, has in store for you
just knowing dying, is a fair price for living...

Ode to a fallen hero


On one fine day in April,
the Mighty Urf did show
his countenance upon the field,
to his enemies great woe.

He fought a champ name Ashe,
who thought she'd win with her extra cash,
but she forgot to factor in,
Urf's mighty Omnisplash.

Poppy tried to show him
what it means to rock a Whomper.
Sadly for this Poppy,
Urf just plain ol' stomped her.

Morgana tried to snare him,
but it didn't go so well.
His speed too great,
he sealed her fate,
and flopped on her as well.

Much the same's the story
for Shaco, Twitch, and Nasus,
After all was said and done,
Urf's fish did melt their faces.

Master Yi did try his best
but in the end he'd run,
cursing to the heavens,
"That Sea Cow has a gun!"

Gangplank tried to fight him.
He wanted to Parrrley,
but in the end the Mighty Urf
did ruin Gangplank's day.

Champions aplenty
tried to best the mighty Urf.
As he crushed them one by one
he'd yell "this is my turf."

All across the league,
these champs, they did despair
to run into the Mighty Urf,
and his aquatic flair.

Sadly for our hero,
his kill streak was for naught.
He met a champ named Warwick,
away from his river, caught.

"Welcome to my jungle, Urf"
The Werewolf cackled in glee,
"sad for you cow, I'm no smurf,
and you're about to see,
what a werewolf can do,
with runepage full,
and well-spent masteries."

Those who saw the battle
shall forever always claim
that Urf did test wolf's mettle,
proving worth and fame.

From this day forth,
The Blood Hunter
may find himself the hunted.

The ire of all
who watched Urf fall
resounds in a clarion call:


Vengeance.

R.I.P. Urf

Poor little Urf,
got smashed while trying,
to get on Warwick's turf,
we'll never get over him dieng.

His life flashed before his eyes,
with memories of his daughter,
and how she had lice,
while pacing the corner trying to earn a quarter.

Warwick shredded the manatee,
with his mighty claws,
how will we fullfill this vanity?
We'll paint his paws.

The big bad wolf is wierd,
he wears Urf's skin around his house,
while stroking his beard,
and feasting on a popsicled mouse.

"It puts the lotion on its skin,"
Warwick suggested,
as he's the Alpha of the wolf kin,
and jungles not to get bested.

Now we're left to mourn,
and dissappointed by the murder,
waiting for a new sea cow champ to be born,
or maybe a goat herder?

Urf will never flip or flop,
with his fat belly,
we'll never see the belly drop,
or his immoral daughter Kelly.

The Forums shall wheep forever,
and rage on and on,
Riot team was clever,
as players act like they knew it was a joke all along.


Thank you for considering my awesome poem,

Huntarded

Urf was friends with a walrus, he had a bucket, and then he sadly kicked it.

I drew some champions (Shaco, Anivia, Corki, Master Yi, Pantheon, Ashe, Gangplank, Gragas, Teemo and Nidalee) celebrating the Urf Day. I don't have a scanner, so I took two photos and edited the size to fit better.

Oh ye of little faith. Watch and pray that you may not undergo this test, for the spirit is willing but the flesh is weak.

For Urf said unto them "Destroy this temple and in 3 days I will raise it up!"

Urf called his disciples to him and said:
"I have compassion for these people; they have not even been with me three days and have nothing to spend RP on. I do not want to send them away disappointed, or they may feed Jax on the way."
Urf told the crowd to sit down on the ground. Then he took his fish, and when he had given thanks, he broke it and gave it to the disciples, and they in turn to the people. They all were satisfied. Afterward the disciples picked up 5,000 RP that were left over. The number of those who fed was zero. After Urf had sent the crowd away, he got into the water and went to the vicinity of Bandle.

Happy Good Friday!

If you feel compelled to compose a picture, poem, video, song, requiem, or any other form of eulogy to Urf, post it here. The summoner whose tribute brings the most tears to the eyes of the most Rioterz will receive a bounty of 5,000 Riot Points, along with the honorific 'Friend of Urf' forum title. The contest will end at 6 PM PST tomorrow, April 2nd, so get composing!
