Let the Wookiee Win

by Susan Zahn

To let the Wookiee win
Would be your wisest move.
Don't test his patience too much,
Or he'll feel it his duty to prove.

Believe me when I tell you
I've seen your kind before;
Just to keep his peace of mind,
He'll toss you out the hatch-door!

Don't move your pieces to beat him.
And, for Star's sake, don't get cocky!
Another damned fool tried it once,
And now he's a permanent space-jockey.

Take some advice from a well-informed source;
I've seen Chewie as ugly as sin.
If you like your arms where they are right now,
I'd suggest you let the Wookiee win.
