Baka baka bleak dispair
Neko neko everywhere.
Darkness fills the world with wai
Heart of pain is so kawaii.
Soul of anguish on chibi wings
Genki genki evil things.
Tormented heart oh so sugoi
Crushed beneath the dark yaoi.
Neko neko everywhere
Baka baka bleak dispair.

I didn't know the source myself (found it on DQN), but http://skree.blog spot.com/2004/07/egad-ive-made-clean-spot-in-garage.html reveals it's from "Ghastly's Ghastly Comic," an ancient webcomic. The webcomic is surprisingly still online, but the site is garbage so good luck finding the exact strip it's from.

Hey, you retarded mongoloid, you stupid jerk, you know that's not how dialectics work, right? I didn't read EVERY FUCKING HEGEL BOOK THAT EXISTS TWICE to support your pseudo-Hegelian bullshit straight out of Fallout: New Vegas art hoe quality "OH I'M A TEMPORARY DIALECTRIC THINKER: THESIS, ANTI-THESIS, SYNTHESIS" right now. Stop passing Fichte off as a dialectical thinker and equivalent of Hegel; Fichte was a bitch and Schelling was sucking Hegel's dick VIGOROUSLY in Tübingen. If you had READ SOME OF STALIN you would know that Hegel's immanent criticism only goes back to the dialectics ONE PART of the construction of intuitive thought and consciousness. For fuck's sake, you're such a pseudo-intellectual, you're seriously fucking retarded. Do you think Hegel keeps the reflective understanding and academic mentality of "HURRRRRY BEING IS THE OPPOSITE OF NOT BEING" intact, lisencephalus? I bet you think that porn is dialectically turning you into a "volcano" and performing better in class, you pseudo-intellectual sperm-brain. Fuck you. Larpero motherfucker, fuck you and stop believing that Hegel postulates sensible certainty as a complete reality, and STOP THINKING THAT BEING IN AND FOR YOURSELF IS A NECESSARY NOUMENAL FUCK TO RETURN TO THE "UNITED" REASON.

Love bade me welcome, yet my soul drew back,
Guilty of dust and sin.
But quick-ey'd Love, observing me grow slack
From my first entrance in,
Drew nearer to me, sweetly questioning
If I lack'd anything.
"A guest," I answer'd, "worthy to be here";
Love said, "You shall be he."
"I, the unkind, the ungrateful? ah my dear,
I cannot look on thee."
Love took my hand and smiling did reply,
"Who made the eyes but I?"
"Truth, Lord, but I have marr'd them; let my shame
Go where it doth deserve."
"And know you not," says Love, "who bore the blame?"
"My dear, then I will serve."
"You must sit down," says Love, "and taste my meat."
So I did sit and eat.

(50 big booty trannies in the kitchens at Trans Trench

Shitting bananas out just before getting fucked

When you’re done with that, those cocks can be sucked

Versatility and Infertility at Trans Trench

Our transsexual monkeys hop from branch to branch

If you want your salad to taste well when it’s tossed, then get your Ram Ranch Dressing from girly cocks

Ready to provide some ladyboy love from our battalion, Big Dick Daphne will ride you like a stallion

Big ass, big tits, big lips, big dicks
At Trans Trench, you don’t have to pick

Blurring the lines between man and bitch
After your visit, you won’t know which is which

50 big booty trannies in the kitchens at Trans Trench

Shitting bananas out just before getting fucked

When you’re done with that, those cocks can be sucked

Versatility and Infertility at Trans Trench

Our transsexual monkeys hop from branch to branch

Jaws drop open, and tranny cum goes splat
Fuck a Ram Ranch, Trans Trench is where it’s at) X2

Gravemind is the best poet. Literary criticism on https://halo.fandom.com/wiki/Gravemind/Quotes :

Wikipedia and halo.fandom.com claim that Gravemind speaks in "trochaic heptameter (7 pairs of heavy-then-light syllables)". Prerequisites:

Is this claim really true? Scan the lines to find out. What trochaic heptameter looks like if 'x' mark representing an unstressed syllable and a '/' mark representing a stressed syllable:
/ x / x / x / x / x / x / x

"There '''is''' much talk, and I have listened, through rock and metal and time. Now I shall talk, and you shall listen." - Said on Gravemind. ['''bold''' suggests a stressed word]
THERE is 1 MUCH talk 2 AND I 3 HAVE lis 4 TENED through 5 ROCK and 6 MET al 7 AND time 8 — sorta is trochaic heptameter
NOW I 1 SHALL talk 2 AND you 3 SHALL list 4 EN 4.5 — not trochaic heptameter

I don't think it works this way, but you could rearrange it like this:
THERE is 1 MUCH talk 2 AND I 3 HAVE lis 4 TENED through 5 ROCK and 6 MET al 7
AND time. 1 NOW I 2 SHALL talk 3 AND you 4 SHALL list 5 EN 5.5

"This one's containment... (gestures to 2401 Penitent Tangent and growls and shudders a bit)... and this one's Great Journey... (gestures to the Prophet of Regret)... are the same. Your Prophets have promised you freedom from a doomed existence, but you will find no salvation on this Ring. Those who built this place knew what they wrought. Do not mistake their intent, or all will perish as they did before." - Said on Gravemind.

"If you will not hear the truth, then I will show it to you. There is still time to stop the key from turning, but first, it must be found. (gestures to John-117) You will search one likely spot...

P.S. I drank one shot of Everclear followed by a water chaser and am drunk now (whiskey river take my mind). My throat has been hurting for too many minutes now. Aesop Fables: drink watered down Everclear to avoid a sore throat.

Captain Hook must remember
Not to scratch his toes.
Captain Hook must watch out
And never pick his nose.
Captain Hook must be gentle
When he shakes your hand.
Captain Hook must be careful
Openin' sardine cans
And playing tag and pouring tea
And turnin' pages of his book.
Lots of folks I'm glad I ain't--
But mostly Captain Hook!

When I consider Life, 'tis all a cheat;
Yet, fool'd with hope, men favour the deceit;
Trust on, and think to morrow will repay:
To morrow's falser than the former day;
Lies worse; and while it says, We shall be blest
With some new joys, cuts off what we possest.
Strange couzenage! none would live past years again,
Yet all hope pleasure in what yet remain;
And, from the dregs of Life, think to receive
What the first sprightly running could not give.
I'm tir'd with waiting for this Chymic Gold,
Which fools us young, and beggars us when old.

Если жизнь тебя обманет
Александр Пушкин

Если жизнь тебя обманет,
Не печалься, не сердись!
В день уныния смирись:
День веселья, верь, настанет.

Сердце в будущем живет;
Настоящее уныло:
Всё мгновенно, всё пройдет;
Что пройдет, то будет мило.

"Candidate" by Joy Division/Ian Curtis

Forced by the pressure
The territories marked
No longer the pleasure
Oh, I've since lost the heart
Corrupted from memory
No longer the power
It's creeping up slowly
The last fatal hour
Oh, I don't know what made me
What gave me the right
To mess with your values
And change wrong to right

Please keep your distance
The trail leads to here
There's blood on your fingers
Brought on by fear
I campaigned for nothing
I worked hard for this
I tried to get to you
You treat me like this
It's just second nature
It's what we've been shown
We're living by your rules
That's all that we know

I tried to get to you
I tried to get to you
I tried to get to you
Oh, I tried to get to...

Here's the one I've come across reading recently.

In Answer to Vice-Magistrate Zhang

Late in my life I only care for the quiet.
A million pressing tasks, I let them go.
I look back at myself; I have no long range plans.
To go back to the forest is all I know.
Pine breeze: I ease my belt. Hill moon: I strum.
My lute. You ask - but I can say no more
About success or failure than the song
The fisherman sings, which comes to the deep shore.
