The Star Wars Hexology in Limericks

The fourth Star Wars movie came first
And it led to a decades long thirst
For starships and lasers
And photons and phasers
Its influence wasn't the worst

The second one wasn't half bad
Though the freezing of Solo was sad
But the biggest plot twist
Wasn't Luke's cut-off wrist
It was Vader as Skywalker's dad

The third movie sold lots of toys
Fuzzy Ewoks the stature of boys
Luke's regretting that kiss
Now that Leia's his sis
And Han Solo is sharing her joys

When George as a matter of course
Wanted science-y cause for the Force
He hyped up his story 'n
Made midichlorian
Claiming that it was the source

Penultimate Star Wars will show
How the clones Lucas made had to grow
Scientifically fake,
What a movie they'll make!
As the franchise continues to grow...

And what will we see in the end?
Now that Anakin's turned on his friend
If you fear Palpatine
Hope is on Tatooine
So let's go back and watch them again!

(Originally George wanted nine
But his six flicks will suit him just fine
He keeps franchising books
And has toy-movie hooks
And his bank account's bigger than mine!)

That one's really funny and true. I was googling on "hexology" and it led me to this limerick. ;)
