    "A Womp Rat's Lament"

    Oh, hide, for here it comes!
    Once again, it's engine hums,
    Like the hot wind that's blowing so fierce.

    We were lucky, last time,
    Found a place we both could climb
    Scurried home, 'fore the lasers could pierce.

    Not this time, it's too late,
    It just "bulls-eyed" my mate,
    And alone, I will spend all my years.

    There once was a fella named Yoda.
    He liked Carolina and blue soda.
    He betted on them heels,
    And Duke made them squeal,
    And a check to cover his bets, he wrote-a.

    :D

    My follow-up to "A Womp Rat's Lament":

    "One Season More"

    Last season, I lost
    All I ever was
    All that mattered,
    That's All.

    My day-to-day life
    All I ever did
    All I ever tried,
    Just Grieve.

    I lay here in agony,
    All I've been doing,
    All, ever since, but
    Now Blood.

    All this time, I've been dead,
    Since that time way before,
    'Cause you can't call it life.
    The only small difference
    Is now blood does pour...
    It finally got me, In "one season more"...

    Sounds like the reason they gave for canceling Buffy ;) Come on folks keep it light-hearted.

    Keep poetry light-hearted? About Sith Lords and evil Empires and such? Impossible. As always, my poetry is notoriously dark and depressing, just like me.

    By the by, in the follow-up poem, that was the womp rat speaking, the same womp rat from the "A Womp Rat's Lament" - since Luke was forced to stay on "one season more," he was around to shoot more womp rats. This time, he "bulls-eyed" the mate of the one previously exterminated.

    It shows the hidden Star Wars - uncomfortably touching the EU-side, but I'm not killing off Chewie or putting some timeline that MUST be followed.

    Here's a lighthearted one:

    EU
    is
    PU


    har har, like I've said before, some is rubbish, some is good - I just don't like it when some people say "No THIS happened in this book, so IT HAPPENED."
    Then another movie or something contradicts that.
    Wait until all the movies are done before declaring something REAL, is my message to the Star Wars EU publishers.

    Is it not impossible for nothing to be improbable?

    Fine I'll teach by example... ahem...


    There was once a Padawan,
    Who dreamed of being a Knight.
    His plans became realized,
    Through sheer Force of might.

    His Master was old and worn,
    but his faith was upheld.
    By knowledge of the Force,
    He saw through the shadowy vale.

    If this Padawan failed,
    All hope was not lost.
    For his sister would prevail,
    At all cost.


    So it's a little rough around the edges... but you can see it is a sequence of hope... not bloody, gory death, or severed body parts.

    But the sister part still brings forth thoughts of the "if you will not turn to the Dark Side, then perhaps she will" and the pain Luke experienced at that moment.


    Edit: OK, here goes...

    There once was a Gungan in Nantucket,
    Saw a Toydarian and wanted to ... hug it.
    Got chased by a wampa,
    Reduced to orange stompa,
    The Toydarian said, "Oh my stars!"

    Edit #2:

    @^#&@*&! I did it again! I CANNOT write about anything but pain, suffering and ill feelings! Maybe I just write what I know. Maybe me writing about all that !^&@ is what frees me up so I can still giggle and grin throughout life?

    Just for Wayne:

    (Young Anakin's Voice): Take this!

    He's green and he's small
    Just about two feet tall
    Couldn't stop Anakin's fall
    Didn't end the Emperor's thrall
    He was no help at all..

    (Young Anakin's Voice): And this!

    EWOKS did what Yoda COULDN'T!
    Train more Jedi? No he SHOULDN'T!

    (Young Anakin's Voice): And this!

    Yoda chose
    DO NOT
    as opposed to
    DO. (in reference to stopping Palpatine..)


    (Young Anakin's Voice): We did it Artoo!


    (Wampa Voice: just funning!)

    OK, No More Mister Nice Yoda!!
    Thrall? Is that a word? Is that english?
    That must be offical wampa language. hehehe
    And have you forgotten my over grown furry friend
    that its not Yoda to you, its Master Yoda! You know I hate to do this to you Joe-da but you leave me no choice. I must take away your blue milk priviledge for the next 30 days. Now maybe you'll think before you speak next time. Thats it! Master Yoda has spoken!

    Uh oh.... I sense trouble!
    Here comes the little green guy on the double!
    Some wampa fur will fly,
    And Yodas saber will try,
    To remake a scene from Empire in a bubble!

    Thrall. Look it up on www.dictionary.com.

    Oh, and there's no "d" in privilege!

    If Yaddle had been in charge, things would be different... sigh!

    Riff, Riff, recieved a gift
    he took a sniff and got a wiff
    What was that wiff
    that riff sniffed?
    The wiff that riff sniffed
    was left by little riff
    he made it all be himself
    it was riffs gift.

    Figure sniffin's so much fun
    But a little too much makes your poor eyes run

    Can't tell the difference between sniffing day or night
    Doesn't really matter 'cause anytime feels just right.

    Just a-sniffing my figures all the livelong day
    Just a-sniffing all my figures, I'll sniff and sniff away!

    There once was a wampa from Hoth,
    who developed a very nasty cough,
    He said with chagrin,
    As the chill set in,
    "I shouldn't have shaved my fur off."

    You are right riff, I wouldnt be laughing if it was me. But after you get used to the late nights and all, you wouldnt have it any other way. Colin is da Man!

    True, Entropy, true. I loves some wampa poetry.

    And whenever I see "Colin" spelled out, all I can think of is the "Colon Blow" fake commercial from Sat. Night Live... Sorry, JediRiff..

    I cant spell worth a darn. What I meant to say in the last post is, Throw you out of the Galaxy I will, not through. Master Yoda, needs to be hooked on phonics!

    I didn't know they made a tiny green version of hooked on phonics... do they also have an "English the American Way?" Help Yoda speak normal, it can. :p
