The Star Wars Fans’ Lament

Some of you may have,

Wondered why,

After the release,

Of The Last Jedi,

The fans seemed to shout,

And cry.

And on it went,

Solo,

Was a no go,

It was a disturbance in the Force,

Of course.

A franchise is trouble,

Torn apart by one film,

Rian’s folly,

A chorus of no’s,

As Finn kissed Rose,

And wondering why,

Suddenly Leia could fly?,

And having to watch,

Our beloved Luke die,

And all the declarants,

Wanting to know Rey’s parents,

Phantom Luke’s fight,

With Vader-lite,

And so we watched,

And now under the guise,

Of Skywalker rise,

A new emperor to despise,

And we will continue to grouse,

And bow to our new lord,

Mickey Mouse.
