Keep Kirk in Lurk

Keep Kirk in lurk.
Control the jerk.
That piece of work.
The bull Berserk.

He’s loud and crass.
A frequent ass.
Can’t not make pass, discount
At pretty lass.

The silly dope.
He preaches Pope.
And clings to hope.
The human trope.

Not Mr. Spock, pharmacy
He’s run a-mok, buy
He’s awe and shock,
He doesn’t grok.

Single minded.
Needs reminded,
Not to find id
Ego blinded.

Few effective.
Spews invective.
Treats prime directive
As elective.

Law evaded.
Ethics faded.
Simply stated:
Overrated!

Ignore his slick,
Adoring shtick.
He’s Captain Prick,
Not James but Dick.

Just keep him penned,
He’s rare the friend.
But hand extend,
We’re not at end.

For inci-dents,
Of rare intense,
Need lack of sense,
And slack of fence.

For these events,
The best compense,
Are stubborn gents,
Of Kirk immense.

When last in place,
In hole your ace:
Old K can chase,
Blow up the race.

Escaping Dodge?
You need the Stodge.
Engaging perp?
No better twerp.

His winning smile,
Full-throttle style,
There’s no denial,
Puts thought on trial.

So tame and train,
Your James T. brain.
To first, refrain.
Yet not abstain.

Yes, Kirk has perk.
Don’t fully shirk,
His style of work:
The bully quirk.

Unlock your Spock

Unlock your Spock, nurse
The thinking jock.
In reason, stock.
Your head full chock.

Emotion, block.
Religion, knock.
Illogic, mock.
To scissors, rock.

Don’t jump rejoice,
Without his voice,
To guide your choice,
Of rolls or Royce.

Don’t improvise.
When chance arise,
Try on for size,
This Enterprise.

This guy insider.
Calm decider.
Anger hider.
Truth abider.

The one that bends.
Who letter sends.
Ends pretends,
And makes amends.

The man who plans.
Buys minivans.
Stores up his cans.
Controls his glands.

No chitter chat,
Or swagger frat.
A diplomat.
A clever cat.

His omissions:
Intuitions,
Superstitions,
Hopeless missions.

He’ll exercise
Humility.
He’ll maximize
Utility.

To measure right,
Looks not hindsight.
Makes best of plight
In current light.

Odds in favor?
Risk won’t waiver.
More than saver.
Future paver.

He never lies.
Yet more, this guy’s.
He flies. He dies.
And then he’ll rise.

Unlike portrayed,
He makes the grade,
He’s wealthy paid,
He so gets laid.

The lesson cinch:
Just inch by inch,
Turn your winch
On Vulcan pinch.

Take lesson stock:
No dove or hawk.
For life to rock,
Embrace your Spock.


RIP Leonard Nimoy
