Pop Culture Poetry: Farmboy

Farmboy

He looks up at the sky and sees
A pair of ships above
Usually his backward world
Is very devoid of

Anything exciting, anything
That’s interesting
You don’t usually see a Star
Destroyer or X-Wing

Soaring through the skies of this
Deserted, dried up ball
Life’s so boring it feels like
It’s moving at a crawl

But his heart races as he sees
The two ships above soar
He stops to watch and forgets of
His Uncle’s assigned chore

Everything can wait, he thinks
He wants to take it in
His excited youthful eyes wonder
Where these two ships have been

Probably across the whole
Galaxy at least twice
He looks down at the sandy ground and thinks
“It would be nice

To fly around in a space ship
And walk across the sky
To see another world that wasn’t
So hot and so dry”

He gets a sudden rush and thinks
“My friends have to see this!”
They’re just as bored as he is and
This battle they can’t miss

He jumps into his speeder and
He races off to find
His friends who are also on this
Hot desert world confined

“One day,” he thinks to himself
“I’ll find a way up there
I’ll walk across the sky while everyone
Down here will stare”
