With Harb doing poetry, I'll give it a try

(Although the conventional rules of rhyme and rhythm with my poetry do not always apply)

Let's face it, at the moment, the forums are dying

The occasional post but then no-one replying

So a change to the posts I feel is in order

(And it helps to satisfy my bipolar disorder)

The number of pointed players is starting to raise

From 9-1-6 to 9-3-8 in only 9 days

Those over the starting points are increasing too

Last week there were 8-0-3, this week 8-22

Over 3000 points, the players start to wean

Since the last post above, it's gone down by 13

The players at the 100k mark seem to be in a fix

They've also decreased (but only by 6)

The half million point players (some victims of war)

Have gone down this week by the grand sum of 4

At a million points, the world has only lost 2

While at 5 million it seems that we have someone new

Up one since last time, the big boys are growing

At ten million points, the race is still ongoing

A handful of players edging themselves North

With the added incentive of becoming only the fourth

With the players all done, let's study the tribes

I'll do it quite fairly with the minimum of jibes

At this stage of the game it's still not too late

To find a new tribe - up one to sixty eight

At over a thousand points the numbers have dropped

3 off the last count of 46 have been chopped

Tribes with 10000 points have fallen by 5

I'm guessing by next time a few more won't be alive

The middle sized tribes are following the trend

The 100K tribes down 2, where will this trend end?

At last, the half million tribes have shown something different

Don't get excited, it's certainly not brilliant

Last week there were 17, this week there's no change

But at 1 million - a new tribe, but something quite strange:

The new tribe is WMD (a tribe I abhor)

But this time they're alone, with no 2, 3 and 4

But enough of the chatter and get back to the digits

(I'm sighing with relief as I haven't yet mentioned midgets)

The top three remain just the same as last time

Gypsy, Ni and FRST so there's the end of my rhyme
