An English Rose in the throes
of Time and Space Wanderlust
As scarlet petals
strewn upon the roof
of a Tardis in full thrust
Where beauty meets the beast
a bad wolf is howling
Waves of gravity rising
from an Eventful Horizon
Rose Tyler, the best of the best
Captain Jack Harkness could never
come between her and the Doctor
Even in the darkness of outer space
After saving this existence, and
the Doctor himself, more than once . . .
. . . from enemies not so nice
. . . with absolutely no fashion sense!
Only to be plucked and abandoned upon
that accursed Doomsday parallel universe.
For Rose Tyler had gazed directly into the Eye of Harmony, the Tardis power source, receiving a Meta-Radiation burst.
The Doctor may have two, but poor Rose
was left with her one heart broken 💔
The Price of Alien Love
. . . Or did it just happen?
On Gallifrey you can never be certain.
Anyway, the High Council decided that
with each ensuing regeneration, there will
be a lowering of the Doctor’s testosterone.
Till eventually he manifests as a woman.
Not so much as a punishment, but an act
of political correctness (Time Lords do
seem to have high opinions of themselves).
Since the Doctor, throughout all of time and space, was married to River Song, all along
(Yes Doctor, remember her … the chaotic
cosmic daughter of the fiery Amy Pond?)!
The two timing Time Lord regenerates into something more comfortably androgynous
(not that David Tennant was some hairy
For there are always humanoids
in desperate need of saving . . .
from creatures seeking a hit of caffeine
And to unravel conspiracies most alien
