The Ballad of Woldrof Baloc Thingold

(a small amount of context for corpmates, but you really had to be there)
Our Woldrof bravely probed the skies
To map the paths of space.
Six bookmarks soon appeared
To win the scanning race.
+SIG.. his message read*
Then intel silent fell.
The seconds crawled ere Woldrof spoke:
Send help or else farewell!
Two destroyers and twenty more
Obstruct my homeward tack,
In Thera more may wait for me
Perhaps I should fall back.
Alas 'twas late and none could aid
"It matters not, I'll jump," he said.
May Thera help the bold.
The men, women, and cats in chat
All watched with baited breath.
@peike refused to go to bed
While Woldrof cheated death.
Intaki to the right of him,
Intaki to the left of him,
Intaki behind him.
Hunted and hounded
Boldly he flew and well
Into the jaws of Death
Not fearing Sin or Hel
Until in Thera landed
The pride of the Signal Cartel.
Cheers in chat for the daring ride,
Then goodnights and oh-sevens
And cat memes, but never forget
When Waldrof charted the heavens.
