It looked like the Greenygrey was hot on the trail of the A.W.O.L Andy Wolfhol in the last chapter of the poetically funny X Files parody XaW Files. I can’t help but think GG has gone a bit off the trail in the sixth chapter, researching and poetically documenting the life of Yerofey Khabarovsk.
Poem about Khabarovsk
Hi, it’s G.G. Howling, fiction writing correspondent at the Greenygrey inspired by J.K. Rowling. I know enough about fiction writing to know that a little background and history is necessary, and that it’s best to fit it into the narrative of the story.
However, I also know that it’s important to keep the story progressing, and don’t know if Khabarovsk is going to be important at the end.
Then again, the Greenygrey doesn’t know that either yet, as it’s still searching for our Wolfhol. Some breather chapters and fillers are often a good idea anyway, and there’s some good info and poetry within this chapter, although all done in a loopy literary nonsense style of course.
XaW Files Chapter 6: Khabarov Stroganov Tretyakov Art History Mix
so well planned
I never got lost.
Named after Khabarov
an adventurer entrepreneur
once manager for Stroganovs.
Stroganovs were an important family
remembered in food and art
like latter’s showpiece Tretyakov gallery.
There’s Morning in a Pine Forest
with a bear family looking cutest.
The Bogatyrs by Vasnetsov
has three warriors
and a greenYgrey background.
Alenushka looking demure
reflecting above a pool
was another Vasnetsov picture.
Khabarov was second to the Amur
after Poyarkov’s three-year expedition
three years before.
Khabarov was there in 1649-50
returning from 1650-53
end of history after refusing expedition 3.
I hope there was a happy ending for Yerofey
because his first name has two Ys
and rhymes with Greenygrey.
