A Shakespearian Sonnet for a Tauntaun (a.k.a. "To freeze or not to freeze")

by Steve Townsley

O, alien marsupial of Hoth!
Thou art a swift and steady mount to ride—
As Arctic Banthas are more kin to sloth,
Unscented breeds will less offense provide!
No fur can keep the weather fierce at bay,
Torrential snow will quickly howl and swirl—
And dropping fast the temperature this day,
Unsettling the fate which will unfurl—
Now soon the far first mark we will approach,
So desperately you strive to keep your pace
Resounding cold will through hide encroach
One last triumphant gargle from your face....
Cans't any creature prove a braver breed?
Keep warm, or else a hungry Wampa feed.
