Deceived by “The Force”

 

Yodas decrepit,

Obi will get it,

Luke is a weenie,

and Vaders a meanie,

Oh! How Lucas deceived me!

 

Space battles with sound,

things odder abound,

marvels of all kind,

each boggles a quick mind.

Oh! How Lucas deceived me!

 

Anis amazing

til he starts phasing

that Sidious charm

to unspeakable harm

Oh! How Lucas deceived me!

 

The Sith are intense

yet Jedi cant sense

them ere they strike blows,

when every man knows

Oh! How Lucas deceived me!

 

Take Geonosis!

Grandly auspicious,

formed as a rescue,

the missions a miscue

Oh! How Lucas deceived me!

 

Robots that wander

on dunes as they ponder

life as a man might

stretch credence beyond sight

Oh! How Lucas deceived me!

 

Since Solo shot first

he didnt fare worst;

now Greedos expired

and cant say if hed fired

Oh! How Lucas deceived me!

 

The Falcons unique,

so speedy and sleek,

but frequently busted,

do they wisely trust it?

Oh! How Lucas deceived me!

 

Which general thought

ice could shield hot?

Hoth! Of all places,

to hide rebel bases!

Oh! How Lucas deceived me!

 

Friend Landos a scamp

and Dagobahs damp

where starships can sink

yet fly straight from the drink

Oh! How Lucas deceived me!

 

Sweet Leia in metal,

that delicate petal,

strange that a Hutt should

hold dear what ol Han would

Oh! How Lucas deceived me!

 

Bobba Fetts jet-pack

failed at the Sarlacc;

would he had lived past

that poorly thought gun blast

Oh! How Lucas deceived me!

 

Dont get me started

on Ewoks big hearted

who get in the way

and yet save the day.

Oh! How Lucas deceived me!

 

Death Stars are fearsome

yet Empires lose them

to renegade bands

amid countless last stands

Oh! How Lucas deceived me!

 

How very absurd

when Coruscant heard

of Palpatines death

they rejoiced in one breath

Oh! How Lucas deceived me!

 

A Parsec is time

Some Jedi are slime

Jar-Jar is stupid

and Leia meets Cupid

Oh! How Lucas deceived me!

 

So farewell to Han

and insurgent band

these Star Wars Ill shirk

to go boldly with Kirk

Oh! Great White Bird console me!
