You knew it had to happen, I’ve mentioned it several times… I LOVE STAR WARS!!!
Sad I know but I’ve played with the toys, watched the movies, the television series and I’ve read the comics. Short of reading the books I think it’s safe to say I’m a bit of a fan.
Today of course is Star Wars day, officially or unofficially I don’t care, it’s a phenomenon worth remembering.
I saw the first in ’77’ before it had it’s episodic title. I never thought I’d be watching it today and for me what better way to celebrate than to write a little tribute to the galaxy far far away.
In Homage to the Galaxy Far Far Away
Stormtroopers born and bread to fight, stand ready in armour gleaming white
TIE Fighters screech across the sky, like fixed wing hornets they terrify
AT-AT Walkers stomp and pound, metal beasts on the battleground
Raging war through the galaxy, as twisted leaders watch ruthlessly
Who shot first? What matters is the fight. Heroes rise, face up to the blight
Armed with Sabre’s Jedi hold fast. One with the force and a mystical past
Rebels or Resistance with blasters in hand, their duty is clear… Serve and Stand
Skywalker and Solo, families connected. Balance found or legacy contested?
Happy Star Wars Day!
