Light Speed.

By foggytwo
What other title could be used when the image is made up from eight electric light bulbs.

On the bridge stood captain Hydro.
In front of them a meteor shower.
He ordered first officer Willie Watts
To go to Filamental Power.
Yes with captain Hydro at the helm.
Willie Watts his number two.
This inter galactic electric ship.
Had a most fantastic crew.
The Green planet they were heading for.
In communication, Vera Volts.
Known to the crew as Voluptuous.
She knew her nuts and bolts.
Captain Hydro summoned to the bridge.
Chief engineer Sparky Tester.
A well turned out member of the crew.
In his bright red suit of polyester.
"I need more power", the captain said.
His face was turning blue.
"Alright", said Sparky Tester.
"I`ll see what I can do".
He called for helmsman Andrew Amp.
Together they opened up the socket.
On connecting up the electrode current.
They sure did boost the rocket.
The ship passed through the danger zone.
The Green planet was out ahead.
Vera Volts received a message.
"It`s scrambled captain", she said.
"Wait", said she, "Something`s coming through".
"It says, Lepidopterians are we".
We have the power to exterminate.
Just come on in and see.
Your electric ship, we`ll blow to bits.
So it`s up to you to choose.
Return once more from whence you came.
Or we will blow your fuse.
"Whats your opinion Sparky Tester ?".
Captain Hydro asked.
We must head home immediately.
We just canna take the blast.
So the captain gave the order.
To send the light ship on it`s way.
Back home to get some bigger guns.
And to return another day.

Thank you for your comment Helen. (I think I make them too long),LOL.
Has anyone ever told you that you have too much time on your hands and you should get a life?

If they do tell them to sod off because we need more of these.

Brilliant piece of work
