(On A) Rampage

Deviation Actions

Literature Text

You got to see me when I'm
(not) Murdering everyone in my path
(not) giving a damn about it
(not) eating the mintals

With a cool demeanor I feel
(not) Well without chems
(not) Bored without fighting
(not) angry without them

But you (don't) need to worry
I'm (not) like the others
I Can('t) keep myself restrained
I (won't) kill you, I promise.

I'm (on a) Rampage,
I'm (on a) Rampage,
I'm (on a) Rampage,
I'm (on a) Rampage.

I'm (not) on the chems,
I'm (not) going to kill,
I'm (not) a reaper,
I'm (not) just like you.

There isn't any need to ask why you
Should (not) trust me
Should (not) let me come along
Should (not) let me handle myself

With razor sharp claws I prey upon
the (economical) slavers
the (powerful) reapers
the (beautiful) flanks

But be glad that I'm (not) coming for you
I'm doing the job for (you) him
so just (ask) shut up and listen
I (won't) kill you, I swear.

I'm Rampage,
(on a) Rampage,
I'm Rampage,
(on a) Rampage,
I'm (On A) Rampage,
I'm (On A) Rampage,
I'm (On A) Rampage,
I'm (On A) Rampage.

I'm (not) getting chems,
I'm (not) going to kill,
I'm (not) a reaper,
I'm (not) just like you.

I'm (not) like the others,
please believe that I care (less),
I can('t) stop any day I want,
I just chose (not) to.

How can't I trust you?
I DID A BAD THING. A VERY BAD THING.

Or maybe not. Well, I couldn't restrain myself from my creative ingenuity. When reading Rampage, and thinking about the Project Horizons story in general, I came up with this title, which lead to why the title is deviated in such a way. I would believe that I should of started the Project Horizons poetry with a Blackjack poetry, but I'm not at the level of knowledge to make a poem about her accurately. Rampage, on the other hand, is perfect. I got a cover coming up too, just as I had promised. Anyhow, I would like to apologize to someone who might be offended that I decided to make a poem this early into reading with a character that is not quite rounded yet. Anyhow, I pray that this will be the only time this happens.

Hey there! Being a bit of  a poet myself this caught my eye. I love Rampage! I am going to show this to a friend who role plays her. (I role play Blackjack) What I love about this is the double meaning it gives with the use of the words in brackets. It perfectly demonstrates the inner conflict inside of Rampage's mind. Could almost be read as a song. Thanks for writing some project horizons poetry. Maybe I should have a go at a Blackjack poem myself. ~ Dashz

well thanks for your interpretation! I've also made some poetry on the original FOE story too!

A conglomeration of souls that seem to take over her body at the best, and or the worst times.

A good representation of the good and bad she has to struggle with. A constant worry, and a yearning to be normal and just fucking die already.

I love Rampage, she and P-21 are my babies, and I don't want Somber to touch either of them. However, I feel that Rampage's will to die is foreshadowing what's to come. Better be a good death, when/if it happens.

You don't want the person who created them to touch them? Well, anyhow, thanks!

I just don't want them killed off.

Regardless if you like it or not, it is the author's choice.

I know, but I'd be extra extra sad.
