If Wishes Were Horses...

Originally Appeared Here

And if wishes were horses, even beggars would ride.
Plotting courses straight through to the Alpha Quadrant side.
Where we party all night on the Deep Space Nine,
And dreams come true underneath the starshine
Now Quark's got a girlie on each arm, sweet and hot like raktajino(1)
Doesn't see the problem til he's losing cash in his casino
But then Odo gets distracted by the Gunji Jackdaws
Running down the promenade, people standing slackjawed
It's all fun and games until a subspace oscillation
Threatens to displace every face upon the station.
Bokai explains the situation, says it's about imagination
Leaves my dad a baseball for his desk, just a tchotchke
Then homeboy peaces out, walking off like Mazeroski(2).

  1. Klingon coffee that appears throughout the series.
  2. Pirates infielder who hit the first World-Series-Ending walk-off home run in 1960, a feat which Buck Bokai evidently duplicated.
