We are Steem Honey Badgers - We have Claws and Teeth
To all my fellow Honey Badgers out there, @anomadsoul has teamed up with @ocdb and @blocktrades to bring us another fantastic competition to inspire the blockchain to get the message to @justinsunsteemit that we're a community of fighters.
Steemit is not steem and you can't hold us to ransom. Much like the Honey Badger when a lion threatens its young... it will fight to the death. This is what steemians are like, we are the honey badgers of the crypto world.
Ten days ago I wrote this post asking Justin Sun to AMQ (answer my questions), tagging him many times and asking legitimate questions that needed answering. He ignored me just like he's ignored pretty much everyone, which just goes to show what he is - a bully who thinks money is all that matters.
When I first read anomadsoul's post I thought, damn... how can I use my skills and specialties in content creation to help fight this bully who is trying to force a hostile take over.
Make a drawing, a painting, a photography, a GIF, hell you can even make a meme about this topic: Steem: The honey badger of communities, fighting to protect decentralization and DPoS.
How can I be a honey badger? My meme game isn't that tight and I'm not an artist... then I suddenly thought, poetry is an art form. Right at that moment of realization a poem flew from my hands to the keyboard like a bullet from the blue. I also gave a meme a go for the title image.
This is an angry poem so if you don't like swearing (curse words) I'd plug your ears now 😉
I hope you enjoy this poem entitled: Steem Honey Badger.
I want to give a big shout out here to @theycallmedan. He has been at it pretty much 10 hours a day snarling on twitter with those honey badger teeth, attacking the lion that is Justin Sun and his PR bullshit. All at a time when Dan is dealing with very difficult personal family issues. I hope this poem I've written and performed reassures you that we're with you 100% in our level of passion, determination and anger at Justin Sun's behavior/methods.
I was spending 6 hours a day myself on twitter full-on honey badger mode for the first 7-8 days of the battle, but I have also been setting up my new creative writer's community The Ink Well over the last ten days, and I've been feeling the burnout hard. I decided to focus on building the community I've been dreaming about for years now and making something that will add to the steem community to give me something to really fight for.
This poem and meme is me taking off the gloves, and getting ready for some bruises, bare-knuckle style. I'm from the UK, we don't fight with guns - but with words or at last resort fists.
Thanks for reading.
