The Tragedy of Urf, The Manatee: An Epic Poem

Were I to tell in truth a tale of man and manatee
You would be oft to relish in my own insanity
In story lies for hero naught but grim and grisly fable
As dark a tale as void beyond (if imaginations able)

For once there lived a champion who strode the waves of surf
To those on land referred to as “The Manatee named Urf”
With spatula and apron vest he swam both far and wide
Protecting those who walked his realm beneath cerulean tide
Wherever Knights and Diplomats did come, like noble Poppy
O met they were with minigun and fish-so-very-floppy

And thus did Urf protect his realm with vigor ever-flowing
His discipline and size and strength and might was ever-growing
And when in time did come for him to prove his noble worth
A test of courage from his tribe was brought upon our Urf:
“Go out onto the lands above where sun doth shine all day,
“And find you in this world a place where rifts of summoners stray,
“And should you find a twisted line of trees above the earth,
“Our champion you shall be to represent the Ocean’s girth.”

And so the manatee did go and leave his home behind
To travel lands of magical and nature intertwined
When finally our Urf did find this Legendary League
The tired warrior rested now so full of much fatigue
While sleeping sound and dreams abound about his idol Jax
An evil figure lurked nearby, sniffing fishy tracks
Alas! Be wary, champion Urf! This genocidal beast draws near!
But in his dreams did poor Urf sing the song of league premier

Blood Hunter Warwick crept until he saw our snoozing squire
And stirred a plan so wicked that a Noxian would admire
“Conspirators have kept me from this league I long have sought,
“But entry would be simpler if the skin I wore was wrought.
“Perhaps this snack is more than lacking in its tone of flesh,
“But disguised as sheep feels quite cliché and this feels rather… fresh.”
His plan was hatched, and silently, he stalked the helpless meal
Poor Urf asleep knew nothing more than pain and squelched a squeal
His throat was cut and stomach gutted, intestines thrown astray
And manatee did wail the night as Warwick slayed his prey
O Gods! How could the summoner’s allow so vile an act – malicious!
Urf torn apart by witty snarks of “MMMMM THIS IS DELICIOUS.”

And so our hero perished not in combat quite profound
Instead defiled by psychopathic, lycanthropic hound
Fear not my friends! This tragic loss will NEVER BE FORGOTTEN!
(Although I think – in just short time – the skin will smell quite rotten...)

Yo, Urf, I'm really happy that the Riot administration, forum moderators, and League of Legend's players are taking a moment to commemorate your death and failure to launch by making a contest out of your demise and all. I'm going to let you finish resting in peace but Warwick looks better than you do as a manatee.

The Boy Manatee Said “Mommy where’s daddy”
The Mom Manatee Said “Son he’s with the sea gods now”
The Boy Manatee Said “Are we going to see him again”
The Mom Manatee Said “Yes son…” Urf May You Rest In Peace…
The Boy Manatee Said “When are we going to see him”
The Mom Manatee Said “I’m not sure son”
The Boy Manatee Said “But I miss him mommy” :*(
The Mom Manatee Said “ … I’m sorry son I…I need a moment”
The Boy …

Urf The riot team L.O.L gamers and your family will never forget you we miss you…
