Hissi Day Special
The Hissi Fit
Vilified, misunderstood, or considered no good.
These are some of the things I’ve seen,
but no matter what, you are the perfect fit for me.
I’ve seen many Hissi with sword in hand, who are brave and true.
Or the Pop Star Hissi, singing her heart out for you.
Have you seen any Shenkuu Hissi? They love to dance too.
Perhaps you’ve heard of Layton Vickles, a great Hissi indeed.
At first sight, he is a fright, but not all is as it seems.
For he is the captain of the Darigan Yooyuball team.
As far as a Hissi in flight, it truly is a delight to see.
Playing hide and seek or climbing a tree.
Your Hissi will want to tell you about it in a story.
Curious creatures they may be, all throughout history.
This is what I call the Hissi fit. Because they will always be
No matter what, a perfect fit for me.
I did not see the Hissi
I did not see the Hissi that was hid upon the tree,
I merely heard a hissing sound come from over me.
I did not see the Hissi’s eyes — almond, yellow, red,
If I had seen them, I’d have froze in shock and frightful dread.
I did not see the forked tongue that the Hissi darted out,
It hungered for a taste of me, I knew without a doubt.
I did not see its scaly tail wound around the trunk,
I knew that it had trapped me where I stood, and my heart sunk.
I did not see the Hissi’s wings, stretching in the air,
I did not see the Hissi — but I knew that it was there.
Upon the tree, right over me, I did not see the Hissi.
It let me be, and honestly, I felt a little dizzy.
The Hissi of Bogshot: Kastraliss
Beyond the swamps of old, deep within Bogshot's groves,
Resides the ghoulish serpent from folktales fearfully untold.
Here, the cryptic Kastraliss preys on unsuspecting passersby—
Those wandering or lost in the bog’s unforgiving nights.
The Hissi is rumoured to be more nefarious than that;
He targets the Faeries of the Forest, stopped in their tracks
By his gaze. His tail coils and constricts like a cyclone--
Faerie magic sapped, their forms changed to forlorn stone.
His name is spoken among few: the bog’s eternal nemesis.
Thousands of years have passed since the great Kastraliss
Was banished from Altadorian wetlands by its guardians.
Thereafter,, Bogshot became plagued with his residence.
Neopets and Faeries formerly thrived in this civilization;
The Hissi arrived with the cover of night and it all vanished—
Offshoot towns of Bogshot fell silent, their Faeries gone.
Those who stayed were too terrified to say what went wrong.
An eon of terror has passed and nonetheless the serpent lasts.
Rustling leaves, fallen trees, the slithering of a legendary beast—
The darkness is his dominion, the statues of Faeries his collection.
Beware Kastraliss; do not trespass in the bog without protection.
The few of us who call Bogshot home are worn by the weary
Intergenerational fear produced by the serpent's tyranny.
Swamp behemoth, Kastraliss be thy name, satiate your fury;
Bog nemesis, mythical Hissi, hear us plead for your mercy.
Ghost Hissi from the Deserted Tomb
In the jungles of Mystery Island,
In a rundown city of Geraptiku,
Stands tall and worn,
The Deserted Tomb.
Inside the tomb,
A Ghost Hissi roams,
Looking for lost travellers,
That invaded his home.
He scares them off,
Telling them to flee,
For if they don't,
What a good supper they would be.
He smiles when they run in fear,
For it would be bad press from Neopians to hear,
That he enjoys snuggling with his Ponka- Blue,
When no one visits the tomb.
Heralding the Hissi
Have you heard the news?
It’s Hissi Day today!
So, let’s celebrate this
In a spectacular way.
Heaps of Neopians are
Intrigued by this ‘Pet.
Sleek and graceful,
Impressive in every way.
Intimidating, yet fascinating.
Scores of people
Strive to own one;
It’s easy to see why.
Hissies are amazing:
Intelligent, with the
Sharpest senses, and
Scales smooth to the touch.
Impossible not to admire!
Heralding the Hissi
Is an easy thing to do.
Stop a Hissi today, and
Salute them on their special day;
It’s something we all should do!
Hissi of The Neopian Pound
Once there was a white-haired Techo,
Who worked beside a cheery pink Uni,
The two a time-tested trusty duo,
Until almost 12 years ago,
With the arrival of a mechanical Hissi.
Although a newbie to the Neopian Pound scene,
He took his duties seriously,
Facilitating all the transfers between,
All Neopians and Neopets he happened to glean.
The Pound Hissi enjoyed his work endlessly.
When you knock on his door,
Expect to witness his signature Hissi head wiggle,
Why he does it- who knows what for?
You’re sure to want to see it once more,
And maybe even join in on the jiggle!
Together with his two lovely friends,
They’ve made The Neopian Pound a home,
For those who are lost and those who roam.
Why not visit The Pound this weekend?
HISSI DAY POEM
Powerful wings to grasp,
My Hissi has no hands,
Still can do any task,
Sharp senses, sharp fangs.
Acute vision, keen sense of smell,
Hissis can adventure well.
Hissis don't have hair,
Not vain are they,
Combs, shampoos, they do not care,
No beauty regimen for them.
Eyes, mouth, and tongue all on their head,
a Hissi body is all tail instead.
Slither and transform into a ball,
They crawl and slide,
Hissis the slinkiest of all,
Wiggle, wiggle, wiggle some more.
I watch him do his graceful squirm,
But do not dare call a Hissi a worm.
The Pteris fly high in the air,
Zafaras run and skip,
Chias race along the bough,
The Peophins rise and dip.
But while these Neopets play and leap,
The silent Hissi slithers and creeps.
I want a Candy Hissi for Hissi Day,
other coloured Hissi’s just won’t do.
Sugarplums and gummies bears are dancing in my head,
These dreams of candy are something new.
Hissi’s are the coolest Neopet of them all,
I dream to be able to paint mine Candy today.
All eyes are on the New Hissi colours being released,
One would be candy if I had my say.
Hissi day is a day filled with fun,
and with cheer.
If I can paint a Candy Hissi today,
that will make it the best day of the year!
My Sweet Little Hissi!
How can it be,
I do not know
My sweet little Hissi
Is gone, Oh No!
I have such trouble
As you will see
He slithers off
And won't take me.
I read him stories
Of peril and adventure
But he is of searching
For a very new venture.
He knows it's his birthday
And I've baked him a cake
All his friends will attend
Including Talek the Draik.
It's late for the party
But still he will roam
Oh please return Hissi
I need you at home!
The Transfer Hissi
I'm the Hissi you see at the pound
but I don't have a name
I help those who don't want their pets found
for transferring is my game
I've always been a fan of new features
so I gladly took on this duty
To help Neopians hang on to their creatures
so loved for their class and beauty
So it'll be nice to see you around
when you lend or borrow an avatar pet
I hope you have a great time at the pound
and enjoy all those avatars you get!
