National Poetry Month: The Squire of Gothos

The Squire of Gothos

My Name
is the Squire, Trelane—

My Interests—
Earth, and Humans.

They’re Just
So very Much

Unusual, Fun,
And dangerous—each and every one!

The Squire of Gothos
(from the point of view of Trelane)

Ahh, won't you stay?
Kirk, think about it, please!
Well, you'll stay anyway!
You, the doctor, your first officer, the communications officer, and the yeoman!
Let us dance, let us feast!
Who am I?
Why, I'm Trelane, the squire of Gothos!
Let us dance, let us-
Oh, come now, no need to fret,
your crew won't mind you gone I bet.
And, if you try to go,
I'll have to kill you, you know,
Let us dance! Let us-
...Oh, I see...
Whatever though.
Happy, happy day!
