Badger Rave

Badger Rave

A Story by SonOfPlunder
"

My first attempt at something a bit more different and surreal from what i usually write

"
I slipped my hand into my pocket

Took out my nights entertainment

Pressed it on my tongue and felt the excitement flow 

As i walked through the streets, i felt it build up in me

Like a wave, a heightened sense of things

I was almost floating, on a cushion of care free air

In the party, the room was thick with smoke and sweaty bodies

The excitement in the air was tangible, the music filled my ears

Then the colours faded, and i felt a cold chill pass over me

The person in front turned his head, looked at me and my heart missed a beat

He was a badger, black and white all over, his gleeful grin clear on his face

I turned my gaze around the room and i saw, they were all badgers

Badgers, dancing blissfully to the music, feeling the ebb and flow of the night

I looked down at my hands, i was not surprised by what i saw

Black and white stripes covered them, i was one of the crowd

So tonight, i was a badger, we were badgers and this was our rave

Wow, this was both trippy and hilarious, Mr. Plunder! Thanks to your photo there, I immediately thought of the "Badger Badger" animation, although the actual words of the poem reminded me of experiences with certain psychedelics.

It's great, actually! I particularly like these lines:

"In the party, the room was thick with smoke and sweaty bodies
The excitement in the air was tangible, the music filled my ears
Then the colours faded, and i felt a cold chill pass over me"

The visuals are excellent here, and really depict the scene you're describing. In spite of that, the poem itself is still very silly and bizarre. Perhaps that's why I enjoyed it so much! I'm intrigued, and would love to read more of your poetry.

OMG! Of course you'd tell them you had badgers living in your head... here was me thinking it would be sheep, lmao! ;-) I'm too funny sometimes, kidding.

This is completely bizarre and random but I adore it. You gotta write more like this! =D

This was completely random! Loved writing it
It's not really the genres I was looking for (Dark, love, romance, or sad). Plus, it's kind of creepy. But, I like the idea of it.

Lol Have fun!
I might be misinterpreting this, but it seems to me that somewhere between walking through the streets and being at the party, "you" unwittingly stepped into an alternate universe!
I especially loved the ability of the character to be so accepting of this new reality, particularly considering that badgers can be pretty damn frightening. But who knows? Maybe they actually make for a better race of intelligent life form. XD

it could be that everyone's true form was revealed to you and that the fur-less, stripe-less world is the hallucination :) I enjoyed this...
