I dreamed I was in a play
I was Princess Leia
But the rebellion never happened
And I cried as I watched
My children grow up on Alderaan
To become soldiers for a repressive Empire

I think about the landscapes
In the original trilogy
How the Rebellion and the Empire
Battle on a desert planet or
A planet completely covered in snow

How a giant machine
Destroys Alderaan
And almost destroys Yavin 4
And then uses the forest moon of Endor
To house it’s shield generator
Would they have blown up Endor?

Is Earth Alderaan?
To be destroyed as a show of force
By a relentless Empire?
Or will we be Ewoks
Dancing in the forest
And playing drums on the helmets
Of stormtroopers…
