"The Great"

A hand written note by the author ...

Sordoc the Great presents the following little number, as a result of a comment he received from one Tharoc Wargrider. Tharoc Wargrider shared a poem he had received from some awful fellow who wrote poems that were most disgusting and vile. Sordoc the Great's pure ears were burned for ever after reading the lyrics of 'We heard what she said ...', such vileness in the language used, but Sordoc the Great must admit that the tune was catchy.

Sordoc the Great was moved to write a poem commemorating Sordoc the Great's first ever meeting with Deklitch Hardin. Sordoc the Great is still waiting for Master Hardin to apologise to Sordoc the Great for besmirching Sordoc the Great's good name. But Sordoc the Great is big enough to forgive Deklitch Hardin for the cruel and hurtful things that Deklitch Hardin said to Sordoc the Great in this encounter, as Deklitch Hardin was only a kid at that time, and didn't know how to properly respond to Sordoc the Great's greatness.

This poem can be performed wherever quality works are performed, and requires two people, one person attempting to live up to the greatness that is Sordoc the Great, as difficult as that will be, and the second person taking on the part of Deklitch Hardin. Despite the discussion of 'kicking Sordoc's rump' in the poem, no physical violence takes place during the poem's performance. Sordoc does suggest that the performers attempt to perform an interpretive dance of the action (minus the rump kicking) to fully entertain the audience. I'm sure you'll grow in your fondness and appreciation of the works of Sordoc the Great after experiencing this poem in a live performance.


On a tree stump by a river, Sordoc spotted a guy,
Crying, "Sordoc, oh Sordoc, oh Sordoc"
And Sordoc said to him, "Young fellow, why do you sigh?
Crying 'Sordoc, oh Sordoc, oh Sordoc?'"
"Are you moved by Sordoc's poems about Paxen," Sordoc cried
"Or do Sordoc's interpretive dances warm you deeply inside?"
With a shake of his red haired head, he sadly replied,
"Oh, Sordoc, oh Sordoc, oh Sordoc!"

He cried all aloud, as he sat on that stump,
Singing, "Sordoc, Oh Sordoc, Oh Sordoc"
"When I think of those poems, I want to kick the rump,
Of, Sordoc, of Sordoc, of Sordoc"
Sordoc paled at that and Sordoc didn't dare dance
Sordoc felt a lump in Sordoc's throat and Sordoc's pants
And then Sordoc entered a sudden trance,
"Poor, Sordoc, Poor Sordoc, Poor Sordoc."

Now Sordoc is certain that Sordoc isn't to blame
Sordoc, Great Sordoc, Great Sordoc,
Sordoc is certain that Deklitch was just playing a game,
"With, Sordoc, with Sordoc, with Sordoc,
And Sordoc will travel across all Caelereth,
Proclaiming with each and every breath
The beauty of Paxen until there comes the death,
"Of, Sordoc, Of Sordoc, Of Sordoc."

But until that day, there is much to do
Sordoc, for Sordoc, for Sordoc,
Showing the beauty of Paxen to you,
Sordoc, oh Sordoc, oh Sordoc,
And though there are those who lack Sordoc's talent,
Sordoc will always present Sordoc's work, for Sordoc is gallant,
And Sordoc the Great is always relevant,
"Oh, Sordoc, Oh Sordoc, Oh Sordoc"

The Problem with poet, is how do you know it's deceased?

Sordoc the Great is pleased that Tharoc Wargrider is a fan of Sordoc the Great's work, however, this is more than simply 'good'! It is brilliant, outstanding, amazing, excellent, cracking, bully, fantastic, and so forth and so on, much like Sordoc the Great.

I have to admit, Sordoc, that "good" was not the adjective I would have chosen to apply to that particular piece of yours either. rolleyes

And stay out! :D

Other than the obvious (that it's written by Sordoc) I can see no problem with this!

"pailed" should be "paled", unless Sordoc the Great turned into a bucket?

Sordoc's works deserve recognition from such personages as Deklitch Hardin and others. Athviaro always carries Sordoc's poems with him in his pack. The are a great morale boost, granting one warmth, light and hot food.

Athviaro Shyu-eck-Silfayr asks that Sordoc the Great write more poems to carry in Athviaro's pack for basic camp needs.

Perhaps we should... maybe... I don't know.. blarrow this? It would set a... frightening precedent though undecided

*looks on in horror at Valan and slowly takes his dagger from its sheath* Ummmm...Valan? Are you feeling okay? Maybe you should go rest? Sordoc's poetry seems to have affected you...in a very, VERY bad way!! :P

I guess it can be blarrowed, as the purpose of this poem I'd say isn't particularly to represent a new peak in literature, but rather a... let' say... interesting take on poetry and it's creator, who is pretty much full of himself - and therefore it's an important part of Santharian culture in a way.

That said, it has a hand written note by the author put in front at the moment, which isn't enough to put this piece in proper context. I'd suggest that an additional introductory paragraph by someone else should be placed in front of it explaining to us why this piece has made it into the Santharian Library (see my notes above). Maybe Sordoc has a friend who can provide said intro and help this piece to get integrated?

Sordoc the Great has only one friend in the entire disk of Caelereth, that is Deklitch Hardin! Sordoc the Great will write to Deklitch Hardin and demand that Deklitch writes an introduction to Sordoc the Great's poem to celebrate the greatness that is Sordoc the Great.

Athviaro Shyu-eck-Silfayr applauds the wisdom of Sordoc the Great, and asks Knobdin just what he was insinuating with his dagger.

Let me see ... something about the reason why this piece of doggerel would make it into the Compendium. Allow me to try to do the 'poem' and the 'poet' justice.


I have been exposed to the works of Sordoc for quite some time now, my first meeting with the Erpheronian was during one of my earliest treks to the north to research the Paxen. While it was the first time I met him, it wasn't the first time I heard him or heard of him. Indeed I had heard his voice well in advance of seeing him and had been warned that there was someone there singing about adoring the Paxen. In the time since that fateful day, I have encountered Sordoc several time

I was thinking that Sordoc's poetry had driven Valan over the brink...so I MIGHT have been thinking of putting him out of his misery? evil

Hello all! It's been a minute since I poked my nose in here. Can't remember if I ever did anything useful.

Ah, too bad that internet is so restricted in China, Ferra. Can't be much fun surfing the web that way if Big Brother's watching you... Hope you enjoy your stay nevertheless!

Hi, dear Arti and other developers!

This year I am in China and cannot use any Google services including YouTube. For this reason I stopped uploading new Nepris videos. I can also not read any comments there.

It just crossed my mind that this information might be useful to you.

Cheers
