Compromise

I see what you’re saying
about how the Rebellion
and the Empire
have both done bad things
and maybe we should be fair to both
and not automatically follow Luke Skywalker
because he’s a Jedi and wants freedom
and things like that
and sure
the Empire did blew up Alderaan
but maybe it had to
and maybe I’m just not seeing the nuances
and anyway
the Rebellion blew up the Death Star shortly afterwards
brutally ending the lives
of many innocent people
and was that really justified
under the circumstances?

After careful consideration
of your request that I be reasonable
and give both sides a break
since
honestly
Imperials are people too
I think I will have to delay my decision
as I have a funeral to attend
this Saturday

It is for millions of Alderaanians
so it may take a while

Let me get back to you
in about two and a half
thousand years
and we’ll see
what we can do
