    The funny thing to me, is firstly that I don't particularly like doing poetry.

    Then I got bored and figured, why not so I wrote my first piece "Within the Spawning Pool".

    Then I saw that Scalenex had said we can do multiple entries and my sense of humour popped up and said "hey, why don't we do a funny one!"

    So I did it.

    Then @Infinity Turtle called it frightening and I wondered if the meaning was lost... :D

    I thought it was pretty hilarious. Something about what is essentially a child given ultimate power in killing is funny. but also a bit macabre imo.

    I'd also like to say that I voted for "Scales upon Scales" as I thought it was a really good composition.

    As proven in the votes (literally just one vote different) this was just as popular and a very well done piece.

    Nice one @Infinity Turtle
