J.J.: Sit Down and Soak Up the Culture

All right…looks it was my turn to stand up (eh…on a stool, I guess) and recite this poem thing. I took a quick swig of ‘Jack’ and hobbled up to face the firing squad.

“Ah-hem….eh….this poem is about my home planet Tatooine. It’s in the 7/13th rhyme scheme of Coo-coo-ca-choo Tusken raider clan, heavily influenced by the 28th century Gammoran poet Obb Nox-uss.

Pallid, pure, somber and infrequent

Like little lifeless lemmings


to die.

Sandy home burning like a scone

With forbidding toenails


out of the desert

On clouds of cream filled donuts

and wasted chocolate centers.

Oh, the sticks of abatement

---Lyrical and fluctuating

In its myriad plebian con-fig-ur-a-tion.

Dewbacks selfishly hoard the jam

of yesteryears dreams

While Womprats listen to the enfeeblement

of the flies of discontentment

that ravage and bite

my eyes

**Glowing…always glowing**

With the turgid memories

Of multi-colored marionettes

Maimed and marked with the




of Ronto droppings

Crisping under the suns

Ripening with satirical zest

Until attainment

and paroxysm

Are one

With the engrossing



Of my


I get off stage and beat a hasty retreat.

At least, I think I'm supposed to snap.

Big bonus points to you for making it the most colorful poem that I've heard yet.

Your use of the word turgid was both pretentious and pompous
