Mission Accomplie!

4 Jan

This 8-part Triple Rhyme Poem was inspired by George Lucas’s blockbuster film, Star Wars.

Read between the lines and perhaps you can relate this to a situation your life or one that you may be aware of.

As is my custom, song titles are hyper-linked to their audio files on GrooveShark.com.

Enjoy the poem!

“Mission Accomplie!”

Gold Leader, this is Dragon Slayer, do you copy? Over.

Victory is sweet like a box of candies from Russell Stover,

And more cherished than my loyal Labrador Retriever named Rover.

I ran my sortie as commanded and I hit the bullseye.

When I saw my missiles hit the target I let out a deep sigh.

I was overtaken with joy and I began to cry.

So long has this evil empire oppressed us and killed our heroes.

We sat and watched in terror while our allies fell one by one like dominoes.

Now it is time for The Big Payback because that how Karma goes.

Burn Baby Burn like a Disco Inferno for your blood lust.

No one is going to miss your tyrannical reign so ashes to ashes and dust to dust.

Your villainy broke the covenant you had with your subjects which is a sacred trust.

Working together while feeling the fear and doing it anyway we toppled this savage beast.

They deserve the worst of everything but they will have to Ante Up now at least.

They were looking westward but our squadron swooped in on them from the east.

You let me have the honor of taking the kill shot and I am grateful.

The things this despotic regime did to me and my family was so hateful.

Revenge is a dish best served cold so I served up a plateful.

Gold Leader, we lost a lot of pilots and ships on this run but it was not for naught.

I’m proud of my brothers and sisters-in-arms because to the very last they fought.

They understood that freedom isn’t free and blood, sweat and tears is the currency in which in must be bought.

Our determination made it happen because there is no “I” in the word “We.”

Pardon my French but I blew them to f*cking bits! Use your long range scanners to see.

Oh damn. Going back to my French I’ll just say, “Mission accomplie!”
