Re: Star Trek poetry

Allow me to present my humble offering. Behold - every word is crafted to provide the maximum emotional impact in the least verbosity, without consulting a thesaurus ...


"Wouldn't It Be Good?"
By 2takesfrakes

Wouldn't it be good if Rain went past Future's End?
If only that she could, VOYAGER would get good again.
Maybe it should be left as Trekkie fantasy?
Sarah was on her way to fame and celebrity.
Wasn't the show in need of her humour and fun?
But somehow all of that potential was untied, undone.
Hotness? The world knows she's got it in abundance.
Midas' touch is what she brings to an audience.
Marry Rain to Tom (ain't that how it should've been)?
The Crew would have loved her through to the very last season.

Re: Star Trek poetry

This thread's a relief! I've been constipated with creativity ...

There I was on the can
posing like "The Thinker,"
heaving a Havanna
and believe me,
it's a stinker.

That's when the ideas pop in
- causing me to Grin.
Trek is on my mind
as I flush a floater, one more time.

I can see vistas, as yet unknown
and ships never flown
set to fire phasers - in little pieces
something's blown!

As I reach for the "one hole,"
and start to wipe, again
In my mind's eye
I see an alien.

It's like none I've ever seen
as strange as Charlie Sheen,
gesturing wildly
at the viewing screen.

One more flush
and everything goes down
Then I wash my hands
with the sliver of soap that I've found.

Now, I'm looking dapper -
knowing it won't be long
til my next time
on the crapper.

Re: Star Trek poetry

I like it!

Some edgy content:

Your Core
Heats me...
My Nacelle
Powers Up...
Warp Fields
Folding, Wrapping 'round...
Reaction Building
Increasing...
Vision blurred
Spectral Shift...
Utterance Indeterminant...
One Word Identifiable
"Engage"...

Re: Star Trek poetry

We have some really good--and some really bad--poets here. Here is my entry:

So far, so far
from here to the nearest star!
No green oasis now awaits us.
The frozen vastness of space.
