May the 4th…

Both here and in a galaxy far, far away

We celebrate a very special day.

A day of wonder, a day of mirth

Unlike few days upon this earth.

When grand heroes will step into the light

To battle forces of the night

Luke and Leia, Han and Chewy

Droids with messages that are screwy.

Tatooine, where the rule of thumb

Is villainy among the scum

Mos Eisley cantina is where you can go

To see the creatures put on a show

Or find a ride into the stars

To avoid the Empire’s radars

That piece of junk?  Just wait a sec

The Kessel run under 12 parsecs?

You know that ‘s not a unit of time…

That story is the most sublime.

Just remember, to your chagrin

In chess you let the Wookie win.

So many great moments across the sky

for those who will live and those who will die

Yoda, the Ewoks, the massive Death Star

Lando, Kenobi and even Jar Jar.

Stormtroopers shooting and once again missing

Brother and sister unwittingly kissing

The Jedis killed off by one of their own

Boba Fett was an unaltered clone.

Tell me again, tell me with care

Boba Fett? Bobba Fett?  Where?

Yoda tells Skywalker “Do or do not”

While Luke uses the Force to lift up a rock.

Vader tells Luke that he is his father

Causing poor Luke a great sense of bother

There is so much to do.  There is so much to say

On International Star Wars Day

There is only one thing that you simply must do

Say to your friends, “May the 4th be with you!”

Annoyed at the Movie

Lines at the concessions

when my shows about to start.

Impatient

 

Too many other people

talking all the time

Rude

 

Light from the cell phone

that apparently can not wait.

Addicted.

 

Pop tops popping open

even though the show does not sell pop in cans.

Sneaks.

 

Trailers before the movie

revealing too much of the plot

Spoilers.

 

Late arrivals

walking in front of me

Showtimes

 

Popcorn

all over the floor

Mouths?

 

Concessions garbage

left behind

Disrespectful.

 

Lines in the bathroom

when I really have to go

C’mon…

 

Someone in the parking lot

who has parked too close to me

Squeezing

 

I’ll be back next week.

 

 

 

 

 

Today was a Great Day!

Today Was A Great Day!!

 

As I lay down upon my bed, before I slipped away,

I thought about the wondrous things that I had done today.

I learned to dance the Harlem Shake, and if that weren’t enough,

I danced it with my little dog, knee deep in marshmallow fluff.

I stopped a thief who robbed a bank, a hero tried and true.

My science trial showed its results and cured the stomach flu.

I braved the snow and frigid winds to reach Mount Everest’s peak.

And Jennifer Lawrence asked me if she should play Mystique.

About the new bill I advised President Obama.

At the zoo, without a care, I caught the escaped llama.

I wrestled with CM Punk, and I forced him to tap out.

I went to Cuba for the Dodgers as a talent scout.

Won an Emmy, Tony and the Academy Award,

I grabbed control of Disney; I’m the chairman of the board.

I read The Iliad; it was about the Trojan War.

I won an arm wrestling contest with the Mighty Thor,

I finished writing my first novel, it went really good.

My grammar may still need some work and work on that I should.

I parachuted from a plane and flew throughout the air.

And I discovered a Sasquatch inside its hidden lair.

I swam out in the swamp and I hog-tied a crocodile.

I was a tourist guide who floated upon Egypt’s Nile.

I led a crew of scientists up Kilimanjaro.

Oh, I can’t wait to see just what I will do tomorrow.
