A tribute to VA Renegade...

Planets, Galaxies, and Proto-stars, I see
as I patrol for an evasive enemy.

And if a glourious death is the way I will die
Let it be at the controls of my beloved TIE.

Like a lover's endearing arms, she holds me tight,
Allowing me to do what she and I do best--FIGHT.

She can be tempermental and her controls need a soft touch,
The things I coax her to do are sometimes a bit much.

But, she is fast and her firepower is awesome,
As her enemy's explosions look like fire blossoms.

Planets, Galaxies and Proto-stars I see,
I am part of her and she of me.
