Chancellor Palpatine

Chancellor Palpatine

Aha! The next move in my little game
Becoming ruler of the galaxy
Is to expunge their order. In my name
The Jedi declared outlaw. For I see,
Their Jedi Council was a threat indeed
Requiring me give Order 66
To terminate them all. Did they succeed
To block me, pulling all their usual tricks
I could not next declare The Republic dead
And pluck this fruit – which into my hand falls
To birth my new Empire, me at its head!
A session of emergency soon calls
The Senate: their old powers vote away
In this extremis, and appoint to lead
One with supremacy and total sway.
That will be me – for who else will they heed?
Oh yes! Things proceed nicely. Now the Sith
Come out into our own, into full power.
Who can oppose us? I am dealing with
The last resistance at this very hour.
Then let Darth Sidious soon stand forth revealed –
For long as Chancellor Palpatine concealed!
