Reviews by Rhyme: J.J. Abrams’ “Star Trek” Reboot…Thingy

This is the so-called “maiden voyage” of the Reviews By Rhyme section. And what better way to usher it in than to review another maiden voyage. That being the new Star Trek movie.

This is still quite an experiment, so bear with me.

Approached with impending dread,
Fearing it like Wonderbread,
Denying Old Trek was dead
By the pass of Berman’s flame.
Now brought back by that “Lost” guy;
Nary a Trek in his eye.
A reboot was drawing nigh
Like a sniper taking aim.
Time travel would take its toll
As a plot point. (Cue eye-roll.)
I prayed this was not a stroll;
A trip down memory “lame”.
And lastly, some heresy;
No Klingons for us to see.
Romulans for villainy
Would attempt to quench or tame.
Here I was at a screening,
Amidst geek peers convening,
All our thoughts were careening
Toward hopes of gloried frame.
Would they let Abrams survive
If the story did not strive
For perfection per Borg hive,
Or bear the brunt of the blame?
I am happy to report
There is no need for retort.
Mr. Abrams did not thwart
Gene Roddenberry’s good name.
This marks a first in Trek-dom –
An “odd”-ity, hailed by some –
It was nowhere near humdrum;
As many a geeks exclaim.

Best Bad Joke…Ever…

It was said that a black man would be president “when pigs fly”.

Lo and behold, 100 days into Obama’s presidency…

Swine Flu.

(Don’t blame me, blame my friend Becky.)
