SFs!! You’ve made stuff, eaten stuff, dropped stuff… not it’s time to get all poetic about stuff!
To earn this merit badge, you’ll have to write a haiku… about STAR WARS!
You know how a haiku works, right? It doesn’t have to rhyme, but it does have to have the right number of syllables in each line (maybe.)
Here’s a haiku to explain it:
The first line is five.
The sec-ond line is sev-en.
The last line is five.
Simple enough… the difficulty is in making it interesting, of course.
Lone before I wrote Origami Yoda, I wrote a Star Wars Haiku which I was always proud of. With some slight modifications here it is.
STUCK IN THE ICE CAVE
STOMP! STOMP! HERE COMES THE WAMPA!
“FLY TO ME, LIGHT SWORD!”
Ok, so the Light Sword thing is a little fishy. That’s okay. This is a poem not a textbook!
So have a go at it and write your own. Submit it with a photo of the subject. (For example, I used a photo of Luke in the ice cave.)
SUBMIT it to Sam with the words POETRY BADGE and your SF NAME in the title. (This is important or Sam might miss it.)
