THE FIGHT BEFORE CHRISTMAS...
Twas the night before Christmas, at the Vigil Dev House
No keyboard was clacking, no clicks of a mouse,
The changelists submitted and tested with care,
In hopes that no bugs would prevent our affair.
The team was content and filled with elation,
As today marked the start of a well-earned vacation,
Excitement was thick in the air as it swirled,
Now twice we’d survived the end of the world.
When outside the building, arose such a clatter,
I heard the blades clang and sounds of blood splatter,
I opened the door, near out of breath,
And what did I see? Twas War on our step!
Demons lay slain, all strewn at his feet,
Others backpedaled amidst a retreat,
“You did this yourself?” I exclaimed in a tone,
He turned and he grinned, “No… not alone!”
Running full bore at magnificent speed,
He leapt and below him appeared a black steed,
Fire in his eyes and smoke in his nose,
Ruin reared back in the most epic pose!
Behind him I saw a new figure appear,
Who yelled loud “This is no place for a Reindeer!”
I squinted my eyes, my neck chilled with raised hair,
Through the smoke I could see, twas Death and Despair!
The Horsemen had arrived as we pondered our fate,
“Apologies” War exclaimed, “the other two are late.”
Posed side by side, Death gave a cold stare,
“No one will prevent Vigil’s festive affair!”
In awe and amazement we stood with great pride,
The Horseman were here, they fought for our side!
I presented milk and cookies, and in a voice quite coarse,
“Impossible” Death quipped, and gave them to his horse!
An intern stepped forward, hoping not to provoke,
He mustered his courage, voice cracked as he spoke,
“Any presents for us? Toys? Anything?”
War jokingly stated, “You wouldn’t like what we bring”
They stood tall with pride and without any equal,
We pondered if we’d see all four in a sequel,
The demons lay slain, the threat had diminished,
Death turned to speak “Our job here… is finished!”
Then War explained the rest of their mission,
“The same now for Relic, Montreal, and Volition”
The path had been cleared for Santa that night,
“Merry Christmas to all… and to all a good fight!”
