"Those Were The Days" (aka The Lament of the Last Trek Fan)

Once upon a time there was a fandom.
Trek was all we ate and slept and breathed.
Now, my friends have gone to other fandoms,
As the last Trek fan what's to become of me?
sample page, a lament regarding multimedia and other fandoms
Those were the days, my fen.
Trek was the living end.
We knew each episode and line by heart.
And through the zines we read,
We knew Trek wasn't dead.
Those were the days,
Oh, yes, those were the days.
First Han and Luke and Leia flashed their lasers,
And the Force soon lured some fen away.
Than Starsk and Hutch, they burst into the picture,
And captured hearts with hints of being gay.
Now they're popping up on every corner,
Magnum, Dr. Who, and Hill Street Blues.
And here's the latest overseas connection,
The Professionals - Bodie and DoDo.
Can you think of where all this is leading?
The very thought could turn your blood to ice.
I'm on my knees, my hand are clasped, I'm pleading
That the next fandom not be Miami Vice.

"You Fill Up My Sensors"

YOU FILL UP MY SENSORS (sung to John Denver's 'You Fill Up My Senses') (filk stolen, I think, from Linda Lakin, et al.)
You fill up my sensors like a giant amoeba,
Like a big planet eater, like a Tholian webb,
Like a Romulan warship, like a Klingon destroyer.
You fill up my sensors, come fill me again.
Come let me probe you, let me scan your dimensions.
Let my data run for you, let my circuits run free.
Let my microchips know you, all my programs run for you,
Come let me probe you, come probe me again.
You fill my sensors like a star going nova,
Like a photon exploding, like the Galaxy's edge,
Like the Antares maelstrom, like the storms of Mutara
You fill up my sensors, come fill me again.

"Poor Spock Is Dead"

POOR SPOCK IS DEAD (filk converted [that's legalese for "stolen"] from Linda Lakin, et al.)
Poor Spock is dead...Oh, poor Spock is dead.
All gather 'round his coffin now and sigh. (Now and sigh I)
He had a heart of gold and he wasn't very old.
Oh, why did such a feller have to die?
Poor Spock is dead...Oh, poor Spock is dead.
The radiation's finally told the tale. (Told the tale!)
It completely fried his ears; made, him old beyond his years.
The Geiger counter's going off the scale.
Poor Spock is gone...Oh, poor Spock is gone.
There wasn't much of him that we could save. (We could save!)
Just a fingernail or two and the sole of just one shoe.
It wasn't worth the while to dig a grave.
Poor Sppck is croaked...just laid down and choked.
We put him in an empty photon shell. (Photon shell!)
Piped him out and shot him free; played "Amazing" gracefully.
The engine room will never lose the smell.
Poor Spock is dead...Oh, poor Spock is dead.
And here we are all smiling on the bridge. (On the bridge!)
Lost a friend of twenty years and we never shed a tear
Cause no one knows we stuck him in the fridge.
Poor Spock. . .poor Spock. . .
