Gilbert and Sullivan were at Tau Ceti
Posted By: Alfred MordeirDate: 5/8/02 1:28 p.m.

Some recent talk about "Marathon to Waterloo" really got my noodle working. I thought, "Now hey, a comedic opera might just be the format that Marathon's been waiting for". So to get the Ball roleing I wrote this little peice. Enjoy

Modern Mark IV Battleroid
(Sung to the tune of ďModern Major GeneralĒ By Sir Arthur Seymour Sullivan)

I am the very model of a modern Mark IV Battleroid
My duty lies in takeing care of space ships made from planetoids
I know the Pfhorish Leaders and quote the fights historical
From Marathon to Marathon in order catagorical

Iím very well aquanted too with beings non-terrestrial
Iíve taken out all creature both reptilian and Eqestrial
Iím fluent in the languages both of the Sípht and of the Pfhor
And Iíve blow them up with large amount of gratuitous blood and gore

Iím well adept at dealing with inteligence artificial
Though their orders are rarely Democratic or Judicial
I often blast through space in hijacked Phorish Battle ships
And I do the bidding of an AI whoís on some kind of ego trip

My fighting style is superb, though improvised and unrehersed
My only goal is to escape the closing of the Universe.
But still in fighting battles in foregen worlds and asteroids
I am the very model of a modern Mark IV Battleroid.
