Perry's Lament · 7:24am
For all my life, all I've wanted to be
Was pony famous and fancy free
But maybe I was wrong
And John Perry shouldn't review fics at all
I'll try to get up on my feet
And try a different tack
I'll find something new to see
There's gotta be more to me than reading a story or three
I shut away my Suffer series, and all the SQUIDs left quietly
The blog is all done, now what is left for me?
Oh, I remember this one: my first Suffer post ever. Boy, I didn’t know what I was getting into! And that's the one where I came up with SQUIDs! I still get asked about that one sometimes. Oh, and look at this one! I think I made all the Spike fans mad that day, hee hee hee! Ah, the box sure was something, especially once I got into it!
Oh, look at these happy moments
All the stories that I have shown!
I made them laugh, left them aghast
And sometimes made them groan
They loved seeing me, the real Perry
Show them a side of this site like they've never known!
Like they've never knooo-oooo-oooown!
I've got to get back out there, and show them some merry
For there's only one great fic reviewer — that is John Perry!*
Won't let that dumb box beat me, won't let it slow me down
For I am Perry, the bestest fic reviewer a-roooooound!*
* I mean, you know, except for Chris, Present Perfect, Bradel, horizon, any of Seattle's Angels, just about any of the Equestria Daily pre-readers, Obselescence once he gets around to starting a review series, Paul from marketing, that guy from class who does the thing with his nose...
