I am just a gimmick from nineteen eighty-three
Iím not Jar Jar Binks though you may think of me
You kept me in the box but then you couldnít wait
I am just a plush toy your dog most likely ate

You think Iím worth big bucks? You sir think erratic
The rats got to me when you left me in the attic
So put your Official Star Wars price guide away
Iím a part of your youth so please just let me stay

But then I got to thinking. Hey I am an Ewok!
How Iím still here if Toys Rí Us is out of stock
Because plush toy Ewoks they just werenít made to last
How come Iím so limber? How come I am so fast?

One time in the Eighties I saw a show called Alf
Luckily no humans around to see me ralph
Iíve never dined on humans but cats are fine with me
Yet I was just a gimmick from nineteen eighty-three

I tried ABC, NBC, and CBS
They all laughed at me when I asked for Alfís address
So Iím just going to sit here and cry a lonely tear
Next to these plastic toys: Woody and Buzz Lightyear

Ya... I remember those over sized hairballs... Darth should have kicked butt, but I guess Endor was his personal Nam. Where's a death star when ya really need one!

As always Walt... you is waaaaay out! A fun read... thanks for sharing.

Awww.. poor little Ewok... brings back memories from my child hood when I cried over a rabit that my mom gave me at birth... I wonder if she cried too when she accidently threw it away?  Hmm.. I'll have to ask her some day. =)

Very nice poem... not just and jumbled up mess of words can make me feel sorry for a stuffed animal, but you did it. =)

 "The storm rises up when the shadows descend
every beat of my heart every day without end
I will stand like a rock I will bend till I break
till theres no more to give if thats what it takes
I will risk everything I will fight I will bleed
I will lay down my life if thats what you need
every second I live thats the promise I make"

I have no idea who wrote this... tell me if you know. =)
