GFFA Hums #4: Pride comes before a Fall
Iella
Scribbles by Diana


[Based on "Disobedience"]

(A poem that deals with the touchy subjects of art and disobedience)



Mitth'raw'nuruodo,
Commonly known as Thrawn,
Took great
Pride in the Empire,
Though Palpy aroused his scorn.
Thrawn, Thrawn
Said to the Emperor,
"Emperor," he said, said he:
"Let me impart my knowledge of art as a weapon for victory."


Emperor
Palpatine ranted,
"Nobody lectures me!"
Emperor
Palpatine panted:
"Down with art history!"
He called his
Sycophants to him
And issued a grim decree.
"The Unknown Regions beckon those who think they know more than me."

Mitth'raw'nuruodo,
Briefed his loyal Noghri.
Mitth'raw'nuruodo,
Invited old Palps to tea.
Mitth'raw'nuruodo,
Said to his troops, said he:
"Either he'll start to appreciate art or he'll meet his destiny."

The Holonet
Had an announcement,
"DEATH STAR TWO DESTROYED:
EMPEROR
PALPATINE'S BODY
CAST INTO THE VOID!
LAST SEEN
TUMBLING DOWNWARDS
SPIRALLING GRACEFULLY.
WHAT A PITY HE STRAYED THE ENDOR WAY WHILST ON HIS WAY TO TEA."


Mitth'raw'nuruodo,
Commonly known as Thrawn,
Told the
Other Grand Admirals
Not to be too forlorn.
Mitth'raw'nuruodo
Said to some Chiss he knew:
"When people refuse to pay heed to the Muse — well what can anyone do?"

(Now then, very softly)
Mitth'raw'nuruodo,
Admiral Exemplary,
Took great
Pride in the E*****
And its supremacy.
Admiral T
Said to the E******:
"E******," he said, said he:
"Kindly-let-me-impart-my-knowledge-of-art-as-a-weapon-for-victory."
