Son of Star Wars Limericks

The Pacifist Queen of Naboo
first ran the blockade, and got through.
Her passion and need
saved the people of Theed,
while Palpatine’s power just grew.

The council of Jedis sent just two
to deal with the strife on Naboo,
secure in the notion
the Trade Federation
would still have no clue what to do.

All those accountants and clerks
weren’t your average jerks:
Though one Death Star would do,
they paid up-front for two,
and charged it to an Empire’s perqs.

First burned up, then sealed in black leather,
Darth Vader felt under the weather:
“Though Paul Stanley of KISS
might find this get-up pure bliss,
there are itches you can’t reach with a feather.”

The Milennium Falcon, it’s true,
cannot be regarded as new;
Still, she’s famed for her speed
and can vanish at need
from an Imperial frigate or two.

    Thank you!

    It takes quite a mind to produce
    A limerick from spam and a goose
    But an articulate pen
    Brings surreal into ken
    Be wary! There’s a mad poet loose!

  3. When Yoda speaks, he’s quite terse
    Each sentence he forms in reverse
    At the end goes the subject
    At the begining, the object
    Only Jar-Jar’s locution is worse!
