Someone tried to challenge me!
In a contest writing rhyme!
I told them it was easy!
I do it all the time!
(Uh?)
Okay, that was rather bad.
Low-hanging fruit,
But I'm hoping that I'll win,
Because I'm pretty cute!
(What is this?)
That's not working either?
Don't like my sex appeal?
Don't worry; I'm still working
It's about to get so real!
(Just no, Ialie.)
Yeah, you know my name,
The prodigal bard,
Don't pretend you didn't know
My status as the star,
(Ego much?)
And if perhaps you think,
That you could step to me,
I'm sorry your suffering,
From dark false memories,
(I got that reference.)
Yeah, I'm tryin' harder now,
Working my thesaurus,
Bout to rock Seren harder,
Than a faeling chorus!
"Aye Ya"ll Where my faelings at!"
(Why is there a chorus?)
Chorus 
Natural faelings are the way,
So beautiful we will stay,
It's about how,
We live in the now,
In Seren, we love to play.
(What the...)
"Ialie!" you protested,
"It's a poem, not a song!"
"Your butchering, the meaning!"
"Doing poetry all wrong!"
(Exactly.)
By now, you should know!
I do what I please,
Sprinkling random commas,
And spelling you're without 'R'-'E.'
(I'm done.)
Don't be like that,
You know you love my rhymes,
You really can't resist them,
My literary crimes.
(Please stop.)
I guess I'll end this now,
I hope you liked my bit,
And if not, I don't care,
Cause I know that I'm a hit.
(Oh good, it's over?)
I just remembered!
There's a literary theme,
Got to add some history,
And set the forest scene,
(Oh Gods!)
Something about trees,
And feeling justified,
Forest against forest
And lots of people died,
(It was really sad)
Crimes against nature,
Tears shed and cried,
And- I'm sure that's enough,
For staying qualified!
(Disrespectful...)
And my chorus kind of fits,
It's faelings, singing songs!
Plus a nod to Seren's beauty,
Now, how can I prolong...
Hey, faelings! Run that chorus one more time!
(Wait... no AGAIN?!)
Chorus
Natural faelings are the way,
So beautiful we will stay,
It's about how,
We live in the now,
In Seren, we love to play,
Though I'm breaking all the rules,
You really can't protest,
You loved every moment,
Cause Ialie does it best.
