Tacking Into the Wind

Originally Appeared Here

Gowron's messin' up, at least from what I can tell
Sends his men to their death and if they don't die well
It'll be a black matter for the Klingon that led them to it(1)
Martok throws himself into the battle just 'cause he said to do it
Just a commoner or yeoman, comin' from the Ketha Lowlands(2)
Doesn't wanna rock the boat and so the status quo stands
So Worf throws down the gauntlet, opposes him, dauntless
Fights with Gowron for the throne, but he doesn't want this
Best him with a broken Bat'leth, but he still gets his say
May have saved the Empire, but you will not have this day

  1. From Shakespeare's Henry V, Act IV, Scene 1, "Now if these men do not die well, it will be a black matter for the king that led them to it." This was quoted by Captain Picard in the episode "The Defector".
  2. Impoverished region on Qo'noS, where General Martok grew up.
