#Force4Ham

This is how you use hashtags, yes? Anyway, I wrote a thing a few days ago.


How does a bastard, orphan, son of a Queen and a
Senator, dropped in the middle of a forgotten
Spot on Tatooine by Obi-Wan, impoverished, in desert dry
Grow up to be a hero and a Jedi?

The lightsaber Founding Father without a father
Got a lot farther by workin’ a lot harder
By bein’ a lot smarter
By bein’ a self-starter
By eighteen, they placed him in charge of a droid charter

And every day while raiders were being slaughtered and carted
Away across the sands, he struggled and kept his guard up
Inside, he was longing for something to be a part of
The brother was ready to beg, steal, borrow, or barter

Then the Empire came, and devastation reigned
Our man saw a holo hope, hoping for Ben
Went out into the desert, met an old man mad
And he got his first saber, a testament from his dad

Well the word got around, they said, “This kid is insane, man!”
Dodged troopers just to get him to Alderaan
“Get your education, don’t forget from whence you came, and
The worlds're gonna know your name! What’s your name, man?"

Skywalker
My name is Luke Skywalker
And there’s a million things I haven’t done
But just you wait, just you wait

It was then, Alderaan split, all of it, Empire-stricken
Two days later, see Luke and his sister, well-hidden
Well sad, sittin’ in her own cell
Obi-Wan fell

And Luke got better but his master stayed dead

Moved in with the rebels, the rebels gave him an X-Wing
Left him with something and R2, somethin’ new inside
A voice saying "(Luke) you gotta feel the Force"
He started attackin' and shootin’ every torpedo off course

There would’ve been nothin’ left to do
For someone less astute
He would’ve been dead or destitute
Without a form of restitution
Started trustin’, trustin’ in his late father’s best friend
Losing Biggs Darklighter and other friends to Vader that fiend
(Shootin’) for every chance he can get his hands on
(Shootin’) for the future, see him now as he shoots in (oooh)
The Imperial Death Star aimed at Yavin
On Yavin you can get a medal

On Yavin you can get a medal (Just you wait)
On Yavin you can get a medal (Just you wait)
On Yavin you can get a medal

On Yavin
Yavin

Just you wait

Luke Skywalker (Luke Skywalker)
We are waiting in the wings for you (waiting in the wings for you)
You could never back down
You never learned to take your time
Oh, Luke Skywalker (Luke Skywalker)
When the galaxy sings for you
Will they know what you overcame?
Will they know you rewrote the game?
The worlds will never be the same, oh

The rebels are on Hoth now, see if you can spot him
(Just you wait)
Another movie comin’ up for the series
(Just you wait)
An opening crawl for all the movies

HAN
I fought with him.

OBI-WAN
Me? I died for him.

LEIA
Me? I trusted him.

LEIA, HAN AND OBI-WAN
Me? I loved him.

VADER
And me? I’m the damn fool that shot him.

There’s a million things I haven’t done
But just you wait

What’s your name, man?

Luke Skywalker!

Don't look at me like that, it was like 2am.

Ha! Someone needs to do a podcast. With sound effects.

That would be nice! Let me offer you some free advice.

Unfortunately, "Luke Skywalker" doesn't scan quite like "Alexander Hamilton" -- and neither does "Rey" -- although "Anakin Skywalker" does...

How does a bastard, orphan, son of a slave and a
No name man, dropped in the middle of a
Forgotten spot on Tatooine by the Force
Impoverished, in squalor
Grow up to be a hero and a traitor?

The Empire Founding Vader without a father...

I like it! It has a fabulous rhythm.

Thank you! I can't take credit for the rythm though as this is written to the tune of the opening number of the Hamilton musical, Alexander Hamilton.
