A slinging poem for Curious Aardvark
Dec 1st, 2023 at 1:13pm
 
Now I sing of Alex Johnson
A mighty hero with his sling
A firm friend to all of his friends
A terrible foe to his foes
One who spoke his mind without fear

He stood firm and strong as he slung
As he stood he threw true and strong
His slung stones all flew like a storm
In truth his sling glory has spread

He walked the way of no return
He joins the house of his fathers
But his great name does not grow old
It lives in the stories of him

Ive scoured through probably close to a thousand different pages and threads from an earlier time in this forum; whilst sitting on downtime at work.

CA pops up everywhere, and seemed like a great guy. Really sad reading his last posts and such.
I don't want to sound insensitive but I really wish he could see this place grow and grow.

I did wonder about posting; but I want to express that his efforts and words affect fledgling slingers such as myself even in his passing.

From a complete rando stranger, that only knows you through text; thank you CA.

It sounds like Homer or a tale from the legend of King Arthur !

His slung stones all flew like a storm !

This is great! You should add it to the memorial thread as well if you haven't already.
