Star bound

  While  traveling at warp speed on the Enterprise
 Captain Kirk came across a pleasant surprise
He came upon  the planet Poetron
Where the written word was spawned

So Scottie beamed him down
 To see what he could find
 The planet had a reddish brown
surface, and with letters it was mined

 The captain stepped on a vowel
And immediately he started to rhyme
But as he began to spell
The letters  turned  into slime
And   Kirk began to sink into a soupy grime

 But Scottie managed to  beam him up in time
And the captain  became a poet in his prime
Uhuru seemed to like his poetic lines
But Spock was not so inclined
And Bones thought he had lost his mind
But everything turned  out fine

Then at warp speed he headed off to adventures new
To a strange planet called Haiku

Joseph May
Theme: Kirk  becomes a poet
