Ode to a Dalek

Rate this Entry
Darling Dalek, don’t evolve,
Your latest incarnation,
I’m afraid just leaves me cold.
Where once you were a pepper pot
With attitude, as like as not
hardly friendly to the doc,
the Tonka toy you have become
looks far to cute: the pre-school primary colour scheme
Is not appropriate to your theme.
Exterminate! That’s what I want,
malignant cruets being cruel,
obliterating other life and raping
Earth for fuel. So darling Dalek, please
go back to being what you were when
you attacked The Empire State. Go on,
just be a mate, just say it one more time,
Exterminate! Exterminate! Exterminate!

    Brilliant, my friend, as always you carry the rhyme scheme so effortlessly (or so it seems).

    Live and be well - H

    Terrific! I remember the cold quiver of fear when a dalek suddenly burst into the room at the end of an episode, shrieking 'Exterminate! Exterminate!' at full volume.
