Re: Star Trek poetry

^ Is that about Saavik taking Spock's innocence on The Genesis Planet? That is my guess, for now. I, myself, have another poem relating to GENESIS. Let me tell you about it! It goes something like this ...

Re: Star Trek poetry

"SPACE SEED"
FROM: David Marcus
TO: Unknown Dad

Father,
I wish I knew who you were.
When you impregnated Mom,
Did you even love her?
Questions:
Am I just a mistake?
Like a clerical error?
Did your condom break?
I know ...
I didn't come from a beaker
Or an unclean toilet seat
Mom thought me a keeper.
Not you ...
One look, and you had to flee
Got in your car, sped out of town
doing a hundred and fifty.
Unfair ...
Other kids know their dads.
I didn't even get cards
for the birthdays I've had.
Science ...
Made me a Momma's Boy.
Another crazy torpedo
that she wants to deploy.
The Cards:
Mom and me play Bridge
other boys go on dates
But I'm mommy's appendage.
Relate:
I watch TERMINATOR 2
Pretend I'm John Connor
And Schwarzenegger's you.
The End:
Before you go in the lava pit
Now, Dad - you know why I cry
Mom finds the remote and grabs it ...

Re: Star Trek poetry

I've decided this thread is a nice storage place for my Trek poetry I've dribbled out over the years. I just found this one while searching for a photo I remembered being posted. Someone started a thread called "Vorik the Pon Farr Vulcan" and it inspired me to write this beautiful poem about one of VOY's worst eps.

Vorik the Pon Farr Vulcan

Vorik the Pon farr Vulcan
Has a very shiny "nose"
And if you ever saw it..
You would even say it glows

All of the other crewmates
Used to laugh and call him names
B'Elanna never let poor Vorik
Join in any bedtime games

Then one special Blood Fever eve
Klingon Pon farr came to stay..
"Vorik with your "nose" so bright
Won't you glide your "sleigh" tonight?"


Then how B'Elanna loved him
As she shouted out with glee
Vorik the Pon Farr Vulcan
You'll go down.. well you get the picture

There once was a man from Riverside
He joined the academy with pride.
He cheated, it's true,
The Kobayashi Maru,
And Starfleet still gave him the Enterprise.

Re: Star Trek poetry

This is a poem I posted a couple years ago answering the oft repeated question, "Why did Lien leave Voyager?"


A Borg! Braga cried,
I shall not be denied
Some cyber perfection
And sweet misdirection
From the pedestrian twaddle
Of this Delta space waddle

The Powers That Were twirled their pencils and grrrred.
A girl then, if you must, and cast for the bust!
And that boy whatshisname, kick him to the drain
He's constantly late, hell he's sealed his own fate.

But the People said STOP!
Have you numbnuts not seen?
Why he steams up the screen!
The most beautiful man
That ever has been.. well one in 50
But that's still quite high
Really, we cannot let Harry Kim die.

CHORUS

Really we cannot let Harry Kim die!
Really we cannot let Harry Kim die!
Really we cannot let Harry Kim die!

(repeat to the whining of a clarinet, warning may cause ear bleeds)

Lien cried, Lien wept as they dragged her away
Braga's door slammed on good manners that day
No letter was sent, not even a card
The arrival of 7 had turned his heart hard (and other organs)

And so Voyager lost the good and the sweet
The kind and the curious, the gentle and meek
And we had to adapt to great slash and great breasts
Yet the debate rages on as to which is the best.

Re: Star Trek poetry

What People say...what People do
Confuse and throw me...how 'bout you.
They seem invested in a thing
But then retreat and take to wing

Support and Unity...hard to find
Lies, Deceit abound in kind
Caring for ourselves and Species
Not so much with Thiefs and Leeches

Even Here, in all our Posts
When the words should matter most
Some just fire off a missive
Not reading threads, so sad, a Given

If we took the time to say
"Hey, your idea is ok!"
"I just do not agree with you."
"And here is what I think is true."

Let's all agree to be respected
Insults, Rudeness not accepted
Points of view abound like stars
Hear Each and Every One of Ours

What say you?

... Just what I always wanted!

Now ... thanks to teacake, your thread - your thread - lives! Just like Star Trek ... Frodo ... and the rest of the gang. Hopefully, this time, many others will follow your example and demonstrate their poetic talents ... for all to see!

There once was a young man named Mudd,
Whose schemes were always a dudd.
Whether love drugs or androids,
And ships crews he annoyeds,
He must have descended from Fudd.

Well, I gave it a try in the other Poetry thread, 'Frakes, but I am with you...I am glad this one is alive...and if I was not clear, I thought your earlier poem was excellent!!!

Re: Star Trek poetry

Most kind, sir! Yes, when you've got a cutey's image associated with an idea you're trying to convey, it does all of the selling for you. And if she's got elvish ears, then the lottery's been won!

>>SNORT!!!<<
