A Million Adventures
by Denise Felt 2000
I want to go far away from here
and help explore the final frontier
with Spock and Bones and Captain Kirk.
I’m willing to go; I’m willing to work.
I’ll work at the helm like Sulu does.
I’ll pilot the ship much better, because
I’m just not afraid of the dangers we’ll find.
I’ve already conquered them all in my mind.
I’ll kiss a green woman and bluff a small elf.
Hey, maybe I’ll captain the ship myself!
A million adventures are waiting for me
when I tune in each week on my TV.
