National Poetry Month: The Menagerie, Part 2

The Menagerie, Part 2
(from the point of view of Spock)

I took Pike to that planet, where
we both were long ago,
He said he wanted to go.
I took him back, and he became young again-
With Vina at his side.
I hid it from the others,
but his smile made me want to cry.
Then he walked away with her...
He had peace of mind.

The Menagerie, Part 2

The video played
and the four men watched
what it had to say.

It showed a long-ago day,
in a zoo-like spot;
the video played.

Pike was snatched away
and the crew said “what?”
What it had to say

Was of a history grey
and distraught.
The video played

And they sat all day
(much too long, but, so what?)
The video played
what it had to say.
