Draegos noted just last July (in a brilliantly squirrely piece of insanity), that Miho seems to attract more poetry than all of the other characters combined. Now, I've often wondered at people's fascination for the undead, and those who control them. The recent spate of fresh Miho verses, along with the Ironcat banner ads on the MT main page, have brought this all back to mind. It's put me into a weird frame of mind, and I've decided to inflict...er...share it with the rest of you.

Bishi Dead Rave Song

Could someone kindly tell me please
Why it is that Japanese
Manga-artists will portray
The living dead in this strange waaaayyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy!!!

[male baritone chorus, with Japanese boomy-drums*]
bishi-bishi-bishi-DOOM!
bishi-bishi-bishi-DOOM!
bishibi-DOOM! bishibi-DOOM!
DOOM-DOOM-DOOM-DOOM!

Miho, Yui, Keska, Mii,
All of them just look so sweet,
But there's no earthly reason why
The living dead should be kawaaaaiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii!

[male baritone chorus, with boomy-drums]
bish-shaBOOM, bish-shaBOOM!
bishi-bishi-bishi-DOOM!
bish-shaBOOM, bish-shaBOOM!
bishi-bishi-bishi-DOOM!
BII-iii-sshhhhhhhhhhhhhhh.....

[female contralto chorus, chanting sotto voce]
Oh! Larva fly across the waves,
Your silent mask floats o'er the raves,
My blood flows out upon the sand,
My heart bleeds rivers through your hands,
And when the mask you wear dissolves,
Your beauty will drain my resolve,
Oh! How could manga-ka Narumi
Kakinouchi do this to me!

[male baritone chorus, with boomy-drums]
bish-shaBOOM, bish-shaBOOM!
bish-shaBOOM, bish-shaBOOM!
[pause]
BOOM!
[pause]
BOOM!

The dead lay rotting in their graves,
And then awake and join the raves,
The floor gets slick, the odors high,
As skin and organs liquifyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy!

[male baritone chorus, with boomy drums]
bishi-bishi-bishi-DOOM!
bishi-bishi-bishi-DOOM!
bishibi-DOOM! bishibi-DOOM!
DOOM-DOOM-DOOM-DOOM!

The living dead are gross, we know,
Stained with gore and caked with mold,
So why should gothy Miho be
The queen of the undead bishiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii?

[baritone chorus and boomy-drums, gradually fading]
bishi-DOOM!
bishi-DOOM!
bishi-DOOM!
bishi-DOOM!
bishi-DOOM!
bishi-DOOM!

*yeah, I know they're called odaiko, but they should be called boomy-drums!
