THINGS MISSING FROM STAR TREK by Phillip A. Ellis

There's Leonard Nimoy's trousers
punching Captain Kirk,
and Scotty wearing evening gowns,
Chekov being a jerk.

There's Sulu training guinea pigs
to march and drink from steins,
and redshirts living till the end,
and Klingons full of wine.

And at the end as credits roll,
the cast, in frenzy, dance
a Viennese waltz, the while they sing
"Mother, where's my Pants?"

There's many things like these, I know,
missing from Star Trek...
still, thank Ghu there's no cameos
from Limbaugh or Glenn Beck

Always happy to be hosting a new poem from Phillip.
