Spock, what's the matter --

Why are you looking at me like that?

It's me, Jim Kirk,

It's really me this time.

 

You wouldn't believe where I've been.

The strangest ship, just like this

Only it was .....

Different, somehow.

 

Those people gave me no respect at all.

That other Spock locked me in the brig!

It took a while to figure out

What was going on.

 

But that's all behind us now.

The Halkans refused; no point in wasting time.

Let's get it over with

And move on.

 

Spock, what's the matter --

Why are you looking at me like that?

Has my own universe

Gone crazy, too?
