Being only a few hundred from gold, it’s driving me mad again. So I decided to kill some time writing a little poetry! Enjoy!

(read in the rhythm of The Raven by Edgar Alan Poe)

Once upon a midnight dreary, as I composed weak and weary
I sat back and took a weary glance of my statement’s score,
while I nodded, nearly happy, I saw something that made me snappy
as I was once again sharply reminded, what I was fighting for.
“I will get that golden badge” I muttered, that’s what I had swore
Only this, and nothing more.

Distinctly I do remember, sometime last year, mid december?
or was it mid september? I had passed the silver door
The rush, the joy! The undying thrill, of having earned it was ever shrill
But even so my senses yearned, and reached out wanting more
“I will get that golden badge” I had muttered. There and then I swore,
Only this, and nothing more

my friends all took to no shave november, mistook me for a partaking member
impressed by my unflinching spirit of the passing month’s lore
I had no strength or spirit willing, to tell them of my real cursed bidding
to never part with the computer whirring, f5’ing to view my score
“it’s almost mine, the golden badge” I mutter. Waiting evermore
But not much longer, I was sure

I do not find it kind or timely, to find the gap to cross so tiny
I am left with a maddening, pounding rushing to my core
With every passing waking moment, the urge to check grew more important
I must have battered the jungle’s website clicking f5 evermore.
“I will get that golden badge” I muttered. Of this I was so sure,
My mental health I did deplore

and so with time always clicking, a song of rhyme always singing
A thundering tock followed by tiny ticking
I wait for that last moment where it comes to shore
everything, everything I did implore
“I will get that golden badge” I muttered, as I returned to my score
Of this, I was sure.

Paw Colors Anonymous?

Yeah, I could definitely relate to your poem – it had me laughing too! It’s crazy how much emotional investment I put into that silly little digital badge, and I’m glad to hear others feel the same way.
