'Twas the Night Before Christmas: Star Wars Style
(written by me back in my college years.....)
'Twas the night before Christmas when all through the galaxy, not a life form was stirring,
not even the Force. Their guns were all poised at their sides with much care, in hopes that Darth Vader soon would be there. The group was all nestled, all snug in their place, while visions of death made them work with much haste.
Princess Leia in her braids, and Hans with his phazer, snuck out of the station, quick as a lazer. When out in space there arose such a clatter, Luke sprang to the portal to see what was a matter. The lights from a ship on a new fallen star gave the appearance of midday to objects afar.
When what to Luke's wandering eyes should appear, but a gleaming spacecraft and eight intergalactic reindeer. And an ominous driver with weapons much greater, Luke knew in a moment it must be Darth Vader.
More rapid than eagles his fighters they came, and he whistled and shouted and called them by name: "on TIE-One, on TIE-Two, and Three and Four, on TIE-Five, on TIE-Six, on Seven and more! To the tops of the planets, to the tops of the stars, now dash away, dash away, dash away all!"
As dry leaves that before a wild hurricane fly, when they meet with an obstacle mount to the sky. So up to the stars the fighters they flew, with a death wish on Luke and Darth Vader too. And then in a twinkling Luke heard on the roof, the blasting and fighting, giving him proof what he suspected, what gave him fear, the end was soon because Darth Vader was here.
He was dressed all in black from his head to his foot, with a cape so long the color of soot. The butt of his lazer he held tight in his fist, made all to know they wouldn't be missed. The group that fought with him came to his side; Darth Vader made know there was no way to hide.
But a man was to save them, to uphold the Force, he knew it was time as his life ran its course. He was dressed in a cloak and a beard white as snow. He met Darth Vader and bowed his head low. He would make things right, just as they should be, and as he raised his head Luke saw: Obi- Wan Kenobi.
A wink of his eye and a twist of his hear soon gave Luke to know he had nothing to dread. He spoke not a word but went straight to his work, picked up his light-saber and turned with a jerk. Then laying his saber down by his side turned to Darth Vader; he had nothing to hide.
Vader sprang on the man, and fought so hard, though Obi-Wan was better, he was caught off guard. But Luke heard him exclaim as he went out of sight, "May the Force be with you, and to all a good night!"
