Star Stuff

Post by Rath Darkblade » Mon Aug 08, 2011 5:46 am

Heh. It was a beautiful day today, and I thought I'd go out cycling. I'd finished cycling, showered, and as I was having a post-cycle snack this idea suddenly popped into my head - and wouldn't let go until I wrote it down. :-) So here, in honour of sudden inspirations, is...

Star Haiku

It's a very quiet and boring day up in space, when a well-known character picks up a pen and writes...

Captain's log; stardate
3050. Ship shaking;
Klingons again? Darn.

A second character waddles cheerfully up, pushes the first character away and writes...

Meesa write haiku!
Jar-Jar good haiku writer!
Meesa got to count syllables-- DAMN!

Another character snatches up the pen and writes...

Chewbacca write now!
Is not much to write when you're
Seven foot tall and hairy.

A fourth character breathes in Chewbacca's ear asthmatically, pushes him away and writes...

Go away, you dolts
My Death Star will defeat you
Bwa ha ha ha ha.

A certain pointy-eared character pushes them all away and writes...

What you are writing
is illogical and does
not compute; stop it!

A sixth character now bursts in, being pursued by tentacles (which miss her), and hurriedly scribbles...

HELP! The Queen is
loose! No time to explain -
shoot it, idiots!

A very short, green character wobbles across the screen and writes...

This all kerfuffle,
the Force not is; so
Listen, grasshoppers.

The first character tackles them all to the ground, pushing them away, and writes...

What are you doing
here? Leave my log alone, and
Go to your own worlds!

The tall and hairy character pushes the Captain away and writes...

Space-time anoma-
ly means we're all sharing the
same world now, Captain!

The asthmatic character impatiently pushes them all away and writes...

Enough of babble!
My Death Star will kill you all!
*His ship explodes* DAMN!

The pointy-eared character calmly picks up the fallen pen and writes...

Your attempts to kill
us are illogical and
laughable; stop them.

Captain Kirk gets up to his feet shakily and writes...

You know that's not what
the Captain's log is for, right?
Shame on you all! Shame!

Jar-Jar, Chewbacca, Darth Vader, Spock, Sigourney Weaver, and Yoda complain (in unison):

But we're booooooooooooored!

The End

Very nice, Rath. It was nice trying to figure out the characters -- for example, I totally missed Sigourney Weaver's Ripley. Well done!
Talk to coffee? Even Gabriel isn't that addicted!

Yeah, Signourney Weaver threw me off too. I kept thinking "tentacles, tentacles... is this some Japanese anime character I haven't heard of?"
