Sci-Fi Geek

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,

Just waiting....

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."

-- Marge Piercy, Woman on the Edge of Time

      Great work and good job to incorporate some of the shows and movies within the poem. I enjoyed this poem.

      Thanks Nell. Yes it usually takes a few episodes to embrace the new Doctor doesn't it, but Peter Capaldi was growing on me by the end of the first episode so I think he will be good. I wasn't sure about Matt Smith at first but I got to like him. Star Trek's a classic too. Glad you enjoyed this.

      Thanks for reading Mary, this is one of my micro-poem series. They are all very short. Sort of a poetic version of flash fiction. Glad you liked the soundtrack and thanks for the vote up.

      Hello Jodah,

      I enjoyed the poem and thought you did a good job expanding the theme for hub length. (For some reason, though, I thought the poem was going to be epic length, in spite of the title saying "micro-poem.")

      Nice soundtrack.

      Voted interesting.

      Hi Jodah. You are most welcome. I am revamping, too. I update one or two every few days. Every time I do, the score really jumps up fast, which is nice to see.

      Thank you Phyllis. I haven't written a micro-poem in awhile. I have to rectify that. I have been going through all my lower ranked hubs though and revamping them. Whatever change they have made to the HP algorithm seems to be working ok, as every hub I have updated has increased in score. Thanks for the vote up.

      If you put them into a book with a snazzy title and great front cover, then publish on Amazon Kindle (electronic version only) it costs nothing! I put a book up that way. It was fun and easy (apart from getting the formatting in Word right for Amazon). Then you could link to it in your hubs!

      Yes drbj, I've been trying to keep it a secret...haha, but now the truth is out there.

      Thank you Marie Maric.

      Hi Suzanne,

      Thanks for the compliment. I've been contemplating that with their popularity. Don't really know how to go about getting a book published but may have to look into it...read some tips on here.

      Hi Kim, thanks for visiting my hub and voting up. Did you seen the Firefly movie? Apparently the reason the series was canned after one season is there was a major stuff up and they showed the episodes out of order. Anyway you can download the entire show online still I think. Anyway, enough geek talk, thanks again.

      Jodah,

      Interestingly enough, I never saw the Fireflies series which I would have for sure checked out being a firefly enthusiast.

      Really enjoyed your poem. V+
