Interstellar Feller: In Which Ill News Is An Ill Guest

Sonneteer's note: this is the latest installment of an on-going sonnet serial, Pepito Mojito: The Interstellar Feller. New readers can get up to speed by clicking on the "Interstellar Feller" tag below to bring up all installments. Start at the bottom and read your way up to today's...

We hate to be a fly upon this wall --
Well, bulkhead -- on the Grokulator, as
Yectara learns the landing party, all
Save her Pepito have returned. She has
A legendary temper, this we know.
She activates her module and suggests
That crew men who let her Pepito go
Might flagellate themselves awhile. No guests
Onboard her ship should ever run the risk
Of kidnapping! Now she has got to plan
A rescue mission. All the bridge crew sigh.
She glares and tells them "He's not just a man
Who caught my fancy, and he mustn't die
Or fall into the hands of enemies.
Prepare, then, to retrieve him, if you please."
