It’s Not Easy Being Anakin

Back when we were younger

I saw you on the sand.

I asked “are you an angel?”

Though I wasn’t yet a man.

Then I left my family

And the only home I knew

To be the kind of wizard

Who deserved a queen like you.

My world with you seemed softer,

Not like sand that’s rough and coarse,

Your presence a temptation

Like the dark side of the force.

I wanted an eternal life

With you, my precious star,

But alas instead of in my heart

I looked for it on Mustafar.

There I had an accident

Involving lava splatter.

My foe had the high ground

But I thought it didn’t matter.

As you died in childbirth

We shared one final “Ow!”

Then your boss gave me a suit

And said “You’re Vader now.”

And now I rule the galaxy

With my evil brand of zen

Until I find that special someone

Who calls me daddy once again.
