The Interstellar Feller: In Which Pepito Doesn't Quite Save The Day

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...

And can it be that he's still unaware,
Our hero? Will he ever get a chance
To act like one, and save his lady fair?
Not yet, it seems: he still lies in a trance.
Thus, when Tribruno presses his ray gun
Against Pepito's temple, there comes no
Reaction, save Yectara's saddest one:
Surrender. To the brig these three must go!
The Ancient screams as they are tethered, led
From this, the crowded chamber of the queen,
Who tempted she who'd warn her, to her bed
Instead of paying heed to what she'd mean.
They'll languish, prisoners, now, through the night,
E'en while the mutineers begin to fight.
