TREKKER

I wish I was Jean-Luc Picard,
Austere, aloof and usually right,
And had a star ship I could fly
into the chasms of the night.

I wish I was Kira Nerys,
Feisty, difficult, androgyne,
And could converse with other races
On the decks of Deep Space Nine.

I wish I was Jadzia Dax
Or any of them really, so
I could know what my children's children's
Children's children's child will know.
