Poem of the Week 66

The Millennium Falcon

 

Roger Stevens

 

 

Okay

I know

You’re right

It doesn’t look much

A plastic tube

Metallic paint, some wood, some wire

But it’s the Millennium Falcon

Spaceship for hire

 

It’s been travelling the universe

For five years and a day

And it was built by granddad

Before he passed away

 

Okay

I know

You’re right

It doesn’t look much

Metallic paint, some wire, some wood

But it fought and beat the Empire

For the forces of good

 

And now upon my bedroom shelf

It’s found its final rest

I know it doesn’t look much

But in its day it was the best
