Not to beat a dead horse
but please don't drive us to tears
nor reduce us to paranoia
by killing off
our favorite custom smilies,
when we've grown so fond of them
Their absence would leave us shocked
perhaps even in a "fire, fire!" panic
but I'm sure not in anger
Of course Ron and co. are our generous sugar cookie
A happy mob we are
So we'll worship in gratitude at their feet
And be eager to pop some corn and see what the new forums look like
Though if at least some custom smilies survive due to ninja-like cunning
it'll be time for a high five.
and a drink to celebrate.
*Actually, many of these animated ones are very cool but hardly ever used. So I'd understand not carrying a bunch over.
