Aromatic Orgrimmar


Okay, so, there weren’t any suggestions for today’s installment of Garrosh’s Poetry Challenge, so instead, I went back to some of the previous posts and basically yanked together a few different ideas that I hadn’t used yet. Hence today’s installment! Just one left, guys — this Thursday will be the last entry in our April full o’ EPIC VERSE, so I’m counting on you all to dig down deep and give me some good options to work with! Don’t drop the ball here, folks! YOUR WARCHIEF HAS SPOKEN!


A bastion standing strong in harsh terrain,
The solitary hold of Durotar,
Where all misguided sieges fall in vain:
Behold the shining might of Orgrimmar.
The sights familiar glimmer in our eyes,
And sounds echoing in ears for all to tell,
But in the Spirit Valley, what surprise
To find the touchstone sense would be the smells.
To south, the goblin stench of industry
With Kaja’Cola undercurrents waft;
To north, the pungent herbal potpourri
That trolls with hookahs spew so very oft.
     And truly, that’s the scent that takes me back,
     To days in Northrend sniffing ’round Zul’Drak.

Since no one else seems willing to give any suggestions I will try. Perhaps an epic battle verse or poem in praise of the horde?

A nice verse, I suppose. Olfactory descriptions are only obliquely interesting for an Undead like me. So is food.

Suggestion: Poem about Murlocs. 😀

And Seaforium. I love the smell of Seaforium in the morning…

If you ask me, it’s been far too long since we had an Epic Verse that ended with “Fuck you, Varian.”
