The Old MooPop Factory
As the seawater laps up
The Shopping district’s shores,
As the mayor explains
The ancient Hermit lores,
As priceless jewels are unmade,
In pools of molten rock,
You see people hurrying to shops
Around the Doomsday Clock.
But what is this thing, that people call
The Button’s reincarnation?
Oh, do be patient, and listen to me,
As I give the explanation.
Once upon a time in Hermitcraft
Before the Hermits came,
There lived an ancient people,
Whose works were now arcane.
They had opened up a factory
For carbonating milk,
Using mushrooms from the District,
Soft and smooth as silk.
As time went by, these people went back
To there from whence they sailed.
In bottles laid MooPOP, the nectarous drink,
Ignored and made in vain.
The factory was now shabby and old,
Crawling with creatures unnamed,
Till the Mayor of the Hermits came,
And had the place remade.
Then MooPOP was made again,
And sold by Mayor Scar,
But news of this unwantonly reached
The ancient people afar.
The bravest of these long-lost people
Sailed back to Hermitcraft,
And beside iJevin’s TNT shop,
Set up the Doomsday Clock.
The first Hermit to discover this
Was Mumbo, who himself had made
A similar-looking creation.
Now Mumbo, being the spoon he is,
Signed up without hesitation,
To what he did not know to be
The plan for the Town Hall’s demolition.
Following his response, all the other
Hermits signed up too,
Though about what it was, none of them knew
More than a thing or two.
Will the ancient people emerge
Victorious over Hermitcraft?
Or will they be driven out from the server
To their homes abroad?
This is what remains to be seen,
Though I do not worry,
As from what this season has till now been
It will surely be extraordinary.
