Ode to the Weighted Companion Cube

Into my life through a hole in the sky,
As you fell into my hands I felt glad.
Never thought I would ever say good bye.
Did I just think of you scantily clad?

A test, an un-scalable flight of stairs,
Was I to use you as a simple stand?
Oh, what a terrible state of affairs,
Rather trivial on the other hand.

Oh brutal temptress, you tell us to part,
“Very soon, must plunge him into the fire”
He’s not just some navigational chart.
I fear the situation has turned dire.
And as I watch you fall into the blaze,
Your marvel never ceases to amaze.
