This article is about the poem. You may be thinking about the song.
It has been designed for both supporters and haters of the Flippy X Flaky shipping.
This poem is freestyle in that it does not use any rigid rhyming or meter structure. However, its lines are divided with a different kind of purpose. If the poem is read normally from the top line to the bottom, the author is describing negative feelings about the Flippy-Flaky shipping. However, if one starts at the bottom line and reads upwards, as indicated in italics at the end, the resulting poem is very supportive of the shipping. This is enabled by a clever use of English sentence combinations that change the meaning around.
Flippy X Flaky is a shipping I dislike
And trust me, it just wouldn't be right to say that
The couple goes well together
Because the the important thing is that
Flippy turns into an evil murderer every now and then.
It doesn't really matter that
There are a lot of fans of the F X F shipping out there...
They are entitled to their own opinions.
Sure I've seen many people spread hatred over the shipping, and
I have my reasons to see the F X F shipping that way as well.
I quite fancy I enjoy sunshine and rainbows in the outdoor nature, yet
Flippy and Flaky are just cartoon characters
And I don't care that
Flaky ever prepared a birthday party for Flippy
That, right there, is the reason why
I'd wish that Flippy and Flaky were permanently separated.
And there's no way that
Flaky would survive every car ride and date
Flippy's Post-Traumatic Stress disorder would get in the way
Furthermore, I honestly doubt that
The two share many common traits...
A loving bond between them is visible
Only when both Flippy and Flaky are very happy
It's not like the Flippy-Flaky pairing is good
After all, when you think about it more deeply,
A pairing between two rabbits or two beavers
Would be really, really cute. I just can't say the same for
A shipping between a green bear and a red porcupine
Which doesn't seem to fit together in my personal opinion.
Petunia X Handy
Is totally a better shipping than
Flippy X Flaky
Soon you'll understand how much
The F X F pair is hurtful to my heart
And never, by any means, will you hear me say that
Flippy X Flaky is my favorite shipping
Now read from bottom to top.
