distant star

  A million light years away
   In a futuristic galaxy 
Far beyond our sky
 Dwell  the knights of the Jedi


   Obi Wan Kenobi is a great Jedi Knight
 He battles the forces of evil
    To do what's just and right
 As he wields his  weapon  of light

   Looking like a knight medieval
Darth Vader causes great  upheaval
   He belongs to the evil empire
 To destroy the galaxy is his desire

   Vader is building a death star
  A weapon of mass destruction
 He must be stopped before he gets too far
 Or there will  be a massive explosion

  Then Obi Wan confronts the medieval knight
 In a battle with sabres of light
   And the rebel forces attack with might
 For justice they do fight

Joseph May
Theme: The Jedi Strike Back

    yeah, Star Wars Rules:) I agree, I just got stuck with the Star trek contest" Sadly I'm not the oldest one, or else I'd probably would have hosted this one instead. Anyways, I had fun with the Star trek theme LOL, I kid you not. Love ~SKAT~

    Captivating story told in poetic form..Enjoyed reading it today..If for a contest, it should be in the winners' circle..If there was a lady named Ella and she married someone with the last name of Vader what would her married name be?..Sara

    Brings back childhood memories. I remember when star wars came out. My gavorite is still return of the Jedi.
