    Okay - as promised, a Thrawn poem. :) A very Disobedient Thrawn poem.

    [Based on "Disobedience"]

    Pride comes before a Fall
    (A poem that deals with the touchy subjects of art and disobedience)

    Mitth'raw'nuruodo,
    Commonly known as Thrawn,
    Took great
    Pride in the Empire,
    Though Palpy aroused his scorn.
    Thrawn, Thrawn
    Said to the Emperor,
    "Emperor," he said, said he:
    "Let me impart my knowledge of art as a weapon for victory."

    Emperor
    Palpatine ranted,
    "Nobody lectures me!"
    Emperor
    Palpatine panted:
    "Down with art history!"
    He called his
    Sycophants to him
    And issued a grim decree.
    "The Unknown Regions beckon those who think they know more than me."

    Mitth'raw'nuruodo,
    Briefed his loyal Noghri.
    Mitth'raw'nuruodo,
    Invited old Palps to tea.
    Mitth'raw'nuruodo,
    Said to his troops, said he:
    "Either he'll start to appreciate art or he'll meet his destiny."

    The Holonet
    Had an announcement,
    "DEATH STAR TWO DESTROYED:
    EMPEROR
    PALPATINE'S BODY
    CAST INTO THE VOID!
    LAST SEEN
    TUMBLING DOWNWARDS
    SPIRALLING GRACEFULLY.
    WHAT A PITY HE STRAYED THE ENDOR WAY WHILST ON HIS WAY TO TEA."

    Mitth'raw'nuruodo,
    Commonly known as Thrawn,
    Told the
    Other Grand Admirals
    Not to be too forlorn.
    Mitth'raw'nuruodo
    Said to some Chiss he knew:
    "When people refuse to pay heed to the Muse - well what can anyone do?"

    (Now then, very softly)
    Mitth'raw'nuruodo,
    Admiral Exemplary,
    Took great
    Pride in the E*****
    And its supremacy.
    Admiral T*****
    Said to the E******:
    "E*****," he said, said he:
    "Kindly-let-me-impart-my-knowledge-of-art-as-a-weapon-for-victory."

    Yay! First response! :D

    Very very funny. I love it. :D (Sorry, I'm not a very verbose reviewer. ;)) I read my mom a few of the poems, and being a fellow Pooh fan and (to a degree) Star Wars fan, she quite enjoyed them, too. :)

    Yes, my name is a reference to the Chronicles. :D I've been a huge Narnia fan for years, and loved the name Jadis after reading The Magician's Nephew. I'm always amazed at how few people, even ones I *know* to be Narnia fans, pick up on the connection. It's quite nice when someone does. :D

    Someone PM me and tell me what bad word this is. I thought I knew them all :p [face_laugh]

    Hilarious, Tahi [face_laugh] :_| [face_laugh]

    It's amazing the way you can fit in a coherent and humorous story into these things :D

    Thanks for the feedback - and so happy to hear your mum likes them. :)

    We have a tradition in our house that to be considered part of the family you have to have at least one of the Narnia books read to you - because all our kids had the series read to them. The Magician's Nephew is an excellent story - in some ways it's a more complete story than the more famous Lion/Witch/Wardrobe book.

    jedi_of_ennth
    Thanks. :) They're fun to write.

    FelsGoddess
    Hee hee - thanks. :)

    Yoda
    Someone PM me and tell me what bad word this is. I thought I knew them all
    Hee hee. I've actually edited that last verse to make it more like the original.

    Well - I guess the stories require a certain knowledge on the part of the reader. So they're only coherent to those in the know. But it is quite a challenge compacting enough facts to give the semblance of a story. LOL

    Vongchild

    What is that E word? Egbert - the Emperor's nickname was Egbert. ;)

    I'm starting to like Thrawn.
    Mwahaha.
    Never saw that coming!
    Neither did his evilness. ;)

    Thanks for reading.

    That. Was. Hilarious.
    I actually got a tear in my eye I laughed so hard. I admit I was a little apprehensive, I didn't see what SW had to do with Pooh, but I am extremely glad I clicked. Great job, Tahi!

    Angharad

    EDIT: apparently I can't spell properly...nor can I catch it....oops.

    Egbert? o_O

    How do you keep coming up with new material? =D=



    The Chronicles of Narnia are some of the best books ever! :) IMHO

    Ooh! Beautiful Welsh name. :)

    Er, yes - I admit to sometimes doing weird things with SW. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't - but Pooh just seemed to fit somehow. Thanks for popping in - and thanks for the feedback. :) It's lovely to meet a new reader.

    Thrawn
    LOL I had to look back on your Veiled Light story to make sure I had Thrawn's full name typed correctly. It's a bit of a mouthful ain't it? I wonder if he got bullied at school? ;)

    Glad you liked it.

    TSF
    Hee hee - at the moment, because I'm having to work extra hours, I find the only fic thing I can really work on is this, because I can play around with the ideas while I'm at work. I know most of the Pooh poems pretty well - so when an idea for a suitable rhyme pops into my head - I run with it. Weird - but at least I can keep writing.

    Still have few problems with the laptop - but hoping to solve them soon so I can get back to work on MHR. The writing programme is fine - but it won't connect to the internet and I think it's the modem.

    I may show the Death Star poem to the Gold Palpy Society (you DO NOT want to go there :p).

    Wow, I just loved that Thrawn one. :D :D I can see that happening, oddly enough... Thrawn does love his art collection, doesn't he? I don't think Palps would appreciate a lecture on the subejct. :p Brilliant work! =D=

    Good to see you again. Are you enjoying your holiday?
    Aha - the Palpy society a bit rough is it? Darwinian survival. LOL

    K_A
    Yep - Thrawn loved his art. I thought it would make a funny story to suggest that both Thrawn and Palpy were intending to teach other a lesson when Fate intervened. And of course the irony is that Thrawn himself was eventually taken out by one of his "loyal Noghri."

    Hmmm - suddenly had a strange image in my head of Ruk painting death pictures of Palpy in secret, while sniggering: "Maybe the old fool should study the art of the assassin." Hee hee.

    ************
    Follow this [link=http://www.wookieehut.com/fic/gffahums3.html]link[/link] to see some more illustrations by my inimitable friend. If you're wondering what is on Isolder's headband - it's his name written backwards. It's so he'll remember who he is when he looks in the mirror. ;) Are we suggesting he's a bit of an idiot?

    [face_laugh] Great pics. He probably also has to use the headband when he needs to spell his name. Love the Darth Maul drawing.

    Great illustrations and it made me realize I missed a poem! :eek: The one about Darth Maul :oops:

    Darth Maul had a swoop bike with CVIs on,
    A present from his mum for passing Sith101.
    On Coruscant and Dantooine, and on the sands of Tatooine,
    He'd zoom around the populace and zap them just for fun.


    Loved that. :D

    "I am Darth Maul!" (ping-ping)
    "I am Darth Maul!" (got one!)
    "I am Darth Maul and I'm having a ball --
    And I fart in your general direction!"


    [face_laugh] Can definitely see the Monty Python in this one :p

    Darth Maul went a journey and met his nemesis;
    He rather went to pieces on distant Naboo.
    The funeral unfortunately quite confused his family,
    For Maul's plot was allotted not just one hole - but two.


    [face_laugh]

    Fantastic, Tahi =D= Sorry I didn't see this earlier, it was very funny. Masterfully written :D :)

    The illustrations gave me a few giggles as well ;)

    No worries, Yoda. :) Yes, Diana's illustrations are priceless. :D She had just watched The Holy Grail before she drew that Maul pic. Classic stuff. I love the ferocious rabbit on his shield.
