Vulcan Wine

Caroline Nixon

Proud Vulcan, take care of this logic you prize,

Beware the fond female with eloquent eyes.

She'll praise your efficiency, flatter your mind

And lull your suspicions of frail woman-kind--

Ah, frail woman-kind.

Oh heed not her words, or you'll never retain

The delicate balance that now rules your brain.

The wisdom of Surak shall comfort you not,

When your rhyme and your reason are gone and forgot--

Ah, gone and forgot.

With skillful fingers and kisses of fire,

She'll rouse your cold body to molten desire

And, Starfleet and duty flown clean from your head,

You'll stay there for good in the warmth of her bed--

Ah, warmth of her bed.
