“The Greatest Story Ever Told”

A Sonnet

It happened long ago and far away,
A princess died and born to her, a son
He’d later use the force and save the day
But first Luke learned to use a blaster gun.
He lived in Tatooine, a dusty place,
until two droids and Obi-Wan arrived.
They spoke of great opponents he would face
and taught him how a Jedi would survive.
His training done, Luke flew his X-Wing to
the evil base that even planets feared.
He found its weakness, missiles flying true,
and sped away; the rebel forces cheered.
The Death Star gone, Luke’s victory was had,
But little did he know his foe was Dad.
