Have a Merry Star Wars Christmas!

The following is a reworking of my poem The Twelve Days of Geekness (itself a humorous reworking of The Twelve Days of Christmas). Enjoy.

The Twelve Days of Star Wars

(To be sung as a duet, with one singer singing in the traditional Twelve Days of Christmas style, and the other doing spoken asides of the words in brackets. The last two lines are spoken.)

On the twelfth day of Christmas my true fan gave to me...

Twelve Senators Squabbling (over who gets the last Christmas cookie)
Eleven Jedi Mind Tricks (those aren’t the droids you’re looking for)
Ten Ships a-Battling (to complete the infamous Kessel run)
Nine Tauntauns Running (remember, dress warmly on Hoth)
Eight Rebels Plotting (a moment of silence for the Bothans)
Seven Blasters Shooting (and Greedo’s dead!)
Six Jawas Trading (but no sand people thank goodness)
Five Bad Feelings (that’s no moon, it’s a space station)
Four Tie Fighters (plus, Darth Vader too!)
Three Lightsabers (don’t cut off a hand now)
Two Stormtroopers (with very bad aim)
And a Sith Lord in a Death Star (I find your lack of faith disturbing)

I’m going to need more room on my collectables shelf (you got that right).
