Star Wars Sonnet


Baby Yoda, his ears are oversized.

I feel a pull of massive gravity.

Bigger than twin black holes are his new eyes.

The Child is born, where’s his nativity?

Disney, where have you hid the merchandise?

I find your lack of plans for Christmas Day

disturbingI’ve already paid the price

for the plushie, why wait to ship til May?

A long, long, time ago, historians

of Star Wars will tell you, Lucas sold toys.

Now, in desperate search, Mandalorians

are scouring the Earth. Pre-order destroys

my gifting plans! Disney, how rude! How mean

to take our cash and not deliver green.
