Micro-Poem (No.7) Sci-Fi Geek
by John Hansen © 2013
I'm a fantasy and sci-fi geek
Some people may think I'm a freak.
Through time and space with Dr Who,
Or part of Firefly's gallant crew.
I may be found in distant skies
Captaining the Enterprise,
Or helping Frodo find the ring,
To slaying dragons for the King.
The real truth is,
I'm a Man In Black,
For my memory back.
"It's all true!" Luciente shouted with amazement . . . "Sometimes I suspect our history is infected with propaganda. Many of my generation . . . suspect the Age of Greed and Waste to be . . . crudely overdrawn. But to burn your compost! To pour your shit into the waters others downstream must drink! That fish must live in! Into rivers whose estuaries and marshes are links in the whole offshore food chain! Wait till I tell Bee and Jackrabbit! Nobody's going to believe this."
