Time Amok

Live long and Prosper, Spock
We will do neither, for we have lost a great friend.

Leonard Nimoy (1931-2015)

Time Amok

There is a thing no outworlder may know…
We shield it with a ritual
And customs shrouded in antiquity
Humans have no conception
It strips our minds from us
It brings a madness
Which rips away our veneer of civilization
It is the Pon of Farr
A time of mating…
The ancient drives are too strong…
We are driven by forces we cannot control
To return home and take a wife
Or die

Episode: Amok Time (September 15, 1967)
