I hope you enjoy these. If there is any typos, do let me know. Thanks.

Through sacrifice and will, the Overmind was slain
But without control, the zerg ran amok and insane
The Protoss home world, now lost and forlorn
But the protoss are united, a future to be reborn
But out of the shadows came a surprise most unexpected
Kerrigan states the Overmind is going to be resurrected
And to unite with her to stop the swarm from taking over again
Zeratul had to put his differences aside and go all in
If the over mind once again is alive and becomes whole
And she would fall under it’s will, forever losing control
Reluctant to trust the former servant of the swarm
But had no other choice but to stop it from coming to true form
The zerg and the protoss, in an unholy alliance
But the Queen had her own plans in her defiance
They helped her achieve her one true goal
For her to have the swarm under her complete control
The Protoss decided to end the Overmind saga
And to kill off the zerg with the temples of the Xel’naga
Their new world was cleansed but at a terrible cost
The cataclysmic explosion left the beauty of it forever lost
The Protoss were strong however, and strong willed
Their fierce determination never to be stilled

But the story moves else where, from light years away
The United Earth Directorate show up without a say
Been watching the the war between the each race
From far away in the deepest void of space
And the best thing to do in the UED’s opinion
Was to take control over the rising Terran Dominion
Then history repeats, a new Overmind was being made on Char
But the UED have a plan, one that goes possibly too far
Instead of destroying it, they plan turning it into a slave
And fighting Mengsk would be a road that was easy to pave
Samir Duran shows up, saying he wants to join the fight
He helped the UED to sneak and with a swift strike
Stole the Dominion fleet and laid siege at the capitol of Korhal
With Mengsk surrounded, he thought he was gonna lose it all
But out of the sky comes the Raiders and Protoss who needed Mengsk
And do their best to try and break the strong grip of the invader’s phalanx
And then the UED persisted in taking over the Overmind in their campaign
They overwhelmed it’s defenses and now they had the reigns
So the broods on Char were no longer working for the Queen
But there was a plan in her mind, where the ends justify the means
Although there was distrust, they put everything aside
And were working together instead of giving into pride
If everything followed through and went with the plan’s course
Through the use of the psi emitter, she can take over a small brood force
And destroy the disrupter so they all can stand a chance to beat
The overwhelming odds to take out the Directorate’s fleet
And succeeded they did, working together as they fought
But Kerrigan didn’t need her allies and attacked them without thought
She held her ground and destroyed all who went against the zerg
And no matter how many they killed, t’was only the tip of the iceberg
Her next move was to crush the UED and the Overmind that has been enslaved
She kidnapped the Dark Templar matriarch so that Zeratul would cave
Into taking out the UED’s Overmind and cerebrates
If he did this, Raszagel would not die in this bitter pool of fate
The Matriarch told Zeratul to do as the Queen commanded
And he did as he told, expecting to get reprimanded
But when the mission was done and demanded her release
The Matriarch’s mind was corrupted and bowed to Kerrigan’s feet
The Dark Templars went in to save their leader in a daring rescue
But they couldn’t save her mind and there was nothing else they could do
Zeratul dealt a fatal blow and freed her from Kerrigan’s control
Ravaged with grief and guilt, the price was a heavy toll
But there was something worse on the horizon and all seemed lost
When Samir Duran was making hybrid creatures of both Zerg and Protoss
He wasn’t serving the queen, but something of a much higher power
And the malformed calamities would make the universe cower
Kerrigan didn’t know of this and thought Duran was gone
She watched over Char from the orbiting platform she was on
Mengsk scrapped together a fleet and attacked the Zerg invested hell
And even with the UED and Protoss were attacking at the same time as well
But the Queen’s wrath and what she was capable of was just a small taste
And laid out all three of the forces army in utter destruction of waste
Mengsk swore revenge as did the Protoss for losing their only Matriarch
The Dark Templars left as they returned to the void of the dark
Kerrigan taunted the Directorate, told them to go to Earth and flee
She gave them a head start but the swarm soon over took the UED
Not one ship returned back their home planet. The Queen won this war
But what is going to happen later on, there is so much more in store

Contest? >.>

Edit. I found the rules and submission requirements. They said poems are not likely to be accepted and needs to be a minimum of 2500 words. Both of my poems together only makes up 1500. >.<I would have to do a WoL addition and I really have no idea how to go about that due to alternative missions and side stories and all that.

well if you included all the side missions youd get around 2500. Do them in order im pretty sure you cant go to another artifact mission till you do a side one.

Go
first three missions
4th smash and grab
5 do saveing colonists
6 say while the colonists were heading to find a new planet they were low on funds and took a contract for tosh.
7th tosh has another mission to the ancient plnet of bel shir
8th the 2nd colonist mission
9th Xil
10pro
11phe
12cy
13!!!
14 safe haven (he sides with hanson)
15 trains
16 break out (tosh last mission with tosh)
17 capturing the odin
18 Mobius
19 media blitz
20 secret
21 contacts valerian
22 maw of the void
23 final missions (breaking the sky is the right one)

I think i might have missed some but you could use that template for your wol one then you could enter it :D

I know siding with Hanson and Tosh is canon, so go with that. I suppose you could pick either alternative in the final missions. If you want to do the Zeratul missions, make them all one bit within the poem, it'll make more sense.
