Author’s Note: I wrote this in May 1990. Unfortunately, I didn’t give it a real title. I had just seen the second Star Trek movie. I will warn you: if you’ve not seen the movie, this just will not make sense. Enjoy!
“Don’t grieve for me…”
Silence, and Kobayashi Maru begins.
“The needs of the many outweigh…”
“The needs of the few or the one.”
Amazing, saving grace.
“I have been and always shall be your friend.
Live long and prosper, Jim.”
A salute —
To life, to death.
For death snatches victory
From glorious re-creation.
Something from nothing,
There are always possibilities…
