On valentines day, someone proposed to write haikus for your favourite Walküre. I did. I also asked for someone to open a forum thread about it. No one did. Now I have the time and the resources, but alas Valentines day is over.

Very well, I write a haiku for every interviewed Walküre. Here's my first few.


Mehr Heimat geht nicht.

Mutig, stolz und forsch bist du.

Liebe Scharnhorst mein.

And away in spring

And a bashful spirit you

And good tea, no less, we fight

And die Ark Royal

1 hour ago, Käpt'n Korky said:

The Cat lady, because you can read AND understand it perfectly? And everyone likes a good spring hunt, right @Wellington99 ?

You wound me.  Are my thoughts so shrouded in enigma that you cannot see where my heart lies?  If I’m an open book, I believe you, sir, are illiterate.

I see where your heart lies. In fact everyone sees it. At the bottom of the Rio de la Plata. And I sure do hope you prevent that once the game is out.

Also I have to profoundly apologise to Fubuki and Espero. For some odd reason (since Espero is one of my favs) I forgot about them being interviewed.

So here are the two missing haikus:

She will steal your heart

Espero is on the way

Steals your pocket too



Focused yet dreamy

Old but modern Fubuki

Odd and silent ship



And I felt this one was in order as an apology for my lack of attention:


What are you and where?

We know you exist but how?

Glorious is missed.

I'm tossing my own one in the fray of my Belle (also I appreciate the Pupper haiku, Korky, and Hood's is very correct, as I am the finest and I'm destined to command her)


Northern hooligan

Pride hides lack of confidence

Korky how could you!  I knew Germans were mean-spirited, but that was harsh.  In the spirit of the thread though, I shall respond.

Stronger than ever

In Rio De La Plata 

My Heart never Sinks



And since he mentioned his fan fiction, I shall continue on Welly’s with two of my own.

Size is but a word

The starry-eyed warriors

Never to falter


Always something new

Life is a wonderful dance

with an honest heart

Not mine, entry from the wiki and according to it printed in Young (1952), who gives his source as Chief ERA "Skips" Marriott. Young, Edward (1952). One Of Our Submarines. London: Rupert Hart-Davis. pp. 60–61.

Twelve little S-boats "go to it" like Bevin,
Starfish goes a bit too far — then there were eleven.
Eleven watchful S-boats doing fine and then
Seahorse fails to answer — so there are ten.
Ten stocky S-boats in a ragged line,
Sterlet drops and stops out — leaving us nine.
Nine plucky S-boats, all pursuing Fate,
Shark is overtaken — now we are eight.
Eight sturdy S-boats, men from Hants and Devon,
Salmon now is overdue — and so the number's seven.
Seven gallant S-boats, trying all their tricks,
Spearfish tries a newer one — down we come to six.
Six tireless S-boats fighting to survive,
No reply from Swordfish — so we tally five.
Five scrubby S-boats, patrolling close inshore,
Snapper takes a short cut — now we are four.
Four fearless S-boats, too far out to sea,
Sunfish bombed and scrap-heaped — we are only three.
Three threadbare S-boats patrolling o'er the blue,
Two ice-bound S-boats...
One lonely S-boat...

The survivors, left blank in the fatalistic rhyme, were HMS Sealion (scuttled), HMS Seawolf (broken up), and HMS Sturgeon (sold).

It refers to the 12 S-class submarines in british service in 1939.

So technically songs are just poetry set to music. With that in mind, have my half assed attempt at a VB parody (couldn’t find a good replacement for the battle cry part or replacement for “real American hero” so gotta make due with whatcha get)



Crashing through the night
Comes a fear full cry
Morganas! (Morganas!) Morganas! (Morganas!)
Navies of great might
Evil taking flight
Morganas! (Morganas!) Morganas! (Morganas!)
No where to run
No where to hide
Panic spreading far and wide
Who can turn the tide?
Victory Belles - (Defenders of humanity)
Mahan: Let’s teach them a lesson!
Victory Belles are there
Victory Belles - (Defenders of humanity)
Victory Belles are there
Fighting for humans
Wherever there's trouble
over all the seas and air
Victory Belles are there
Can the world oppose
Deadliest of foes?
Morganas! (Morganas!) Morganas! (Morganas!)
Belles will risk it all
To end the evil call of
Morganas! (Morganas!) Morganas! (Morganas!)
They never give up
They never say die
Walking tall with banners high
They sound their battle cry-
Manchester: Get stuffed you Morgana bit-
Victory Belles - (Defenders of humanity)
Victory Belles will dare
Victory Belles - (Defenders of humanity)
Victory Belles are there
Fighting for humans
Wherever there's trouble
over all the seas and air
Victory Belles are there
Victory Belles is the codename for the world’s daring, highly trained special naval force.
It's purpose, to defend human freedom against Morganas- an extraterrestrial organization determined to wipe out man.
Victory Belles - (Defenders of humanity)
Victory Belles will dare
Victory Belles - (Defenders of humanity)
Victory Belles are there
Fighting for humans
Wherever there's trouble
over all the seas and air
Victory Belles are there
Avarice: Morganas! Retreat! Retreat!
Victory Belles - (Defenders of humanity)
Victory Belles are there
Victory Belles

Hm, I thought I had shared it already. Poem after limping Joes infamous Sportpalast speech about total war.

"Lieber Tommy fliege weiter, 

hier gibt's nur brave Ruhrarbeiter.

Fliege weiter nach Berlin, 

dort haben alle 'Heil' geschrie'n."

"Dear Tommy fly on, 

just some modest* Ruhr workers live here.

Fly on towards Berlin, 

they all screamed 'Heil' there."

*some liberation in translation to get the meaning across.
