    STRATEGIC BEAM COMMAND Can you hear it in the distance Can you feel it in the air? Wide of stance and solar panel Powered by fire and solar flares.

      STRATEGIC BEAM COMMAND

      Can you hear it in the distance

      Can you feel it in the air?

      Wide of stance and solar panel

      Powered by fire and solar flares.

      Micro-Procies all be banned

      The Strategic Beam Command

      Bolts of lightning in our hands

      Go against us if you dare!

       

      Shockwaves rip out chunks of concrete

      When my photopoppers fire.

      Solarbotics pager motors burning

      Like a funeral pyre.

      Voltage triggers tightening

      And the motor torque is frightening

      The caps are spitting lightning

      Glowing plasma rips my wires!

       

      Stronger, faster, smarter is the bot

      I'm working towards.

      I scream in hideous terror as I

      Build my circuit boards.

      Cells on top and motors under

      People stare in wide eyed wonder

      On we fly on wings of thunder

      Nevermore to sheathe our swords!

          I nominate our friend Johnny S. as Knight-Herald of the Cybernetic
          Brotherhood of BEAM.

          Long may you strike fear in the hearts of the Lumbering, Oafish Horde
          of electronic offal that is convention. Let fly your lightning
          tongue and rapier wit so that all paradigms may be shifted...nay,
          obliterated by it's veracity!

          Anyone second?

          Purely honorary post, mind you. No paycheck involved ('natch!).
          Probably no chicks, either. Oh well...
