What If, What If
What if Wash hadn’t died that time that he did?
What if Wash really had been a leaf on the wind?
And what if he’d soared through the peril, the fear,
And then landed so safely, so softly, so near?
The gasps would not have rung out from his friends and his crew
And the tears from his wife would have tempered like dew.
The shock, the unfairness, the curse toward that god
Too unfair and too cruel to be called kind or wise,
Would have melted away, turned relief and to joy.
We would not have all mourned, we would not have all cried.
We would have been happy if Wash had not died.
Then for the Whovians who just celebrated yesterday: (again, Spoilers)
Remember that time when Moffat was kind?
When people all laughed and nobody died?
Remember just once, that everyone lives!
Everyone that is except Eleven.
But that's not 'til Christmas so we are all fine.
That glimpse of Capaldi quite blew our minds.
Yes, we laughed and we laughed and we laughed, oh so fun.
And now have some hints at what is to come.
It was joyous and excellent, oh Moffat, oh you.
What a well done and marvelous 50th tribute.
