This Is Not the Poem You’re Looking For

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

Try

There is a try
trapped in the heart of do
and the little green teacher
who fails to tell you so
will nod profoundly as you fail
and teach you a lesson about destiny
though you will learn very little
and eventually win via coincidence

Trailer

OH MY GOD THIS IS THE BEST TRAILER EVER
it’s so full of things
and people
and fragments of dialogue
and a soundtrack that won’t be used in the film itself
but SCREW IT this trailer is awesome
I am in love with it
it can do no wrong

Well
maybe that’s not true
maybe that one bit didn’t really work for me
and I don’t know about the protagonist
and was that really a pun?
Is this movie making puns now?
I don’t want to see it if there are puns
or clichés
or expository speeches

I can’t believe this trailer is so terrible
I’ve been waiting for it for weeks
and it lasted almost two minutes
and I don’t even know if I want to rewatch it
for a fourteenth time
since it’s doing things all wrong
and everyone needs to know that

Though actually
it’s not bad
and I bet the movie will be amazing
and OH MY GOD IT’S ANOTHER TRAILER

I wonder
what this one will be like

Well
that was [censored]
I really [censored] the part where the [censored] found the [censored]
and it was great that the [censored] was [censored]
and when it turned out that [censored] was actually [censored]
just after [censored]
I wanted to scream
[Censored]
at the top of my [censored]

I think you’ll really [censored] it
and should probably be prepared for [censored]
though if rumours are true
