about

As of course you know, a Padawan is a Jedi apprentice. But the Padawan of this story is attending a mashup convention of many faces and masks, a mixing of alter-egos and super-egos. Where else might Scotty meet Stark, or Chewie hangout with Cyclops? Are we in comicbook heaven? Unashamedly synth-pop, Padawan is more fun than a romp with an Ewok.

PADAWAN

1
He's selling merchandise
Convention capes with a lamé lining,
He had to hike the price
To get a table near the all-star signing

Her Lincoln just arrived
White leather seats with some rhinestones shining
She's got a Gotham vibe
She's got a minder who is short but frightening

She's a screen queen
She beamed
From a celluloid world
From a Chromakey galaxy
He's reading
Her telepathy
She's got his systems overheating...

'I know about a thing called love
I know it's what you're thinking of
So show you've got a Minuteman
I know that you're my Padawan'


2
He's hardly one for fights
You'd never call him a Man of Steel
He's not so great in tights -
His taco habit's an Achilles heel

But when their worlds collide,
He sees the truth, and the truth is blinding
There's something loose inside
His alter-ego's done with hiding, and

He's a ray gun
On stun
See him pushing past the Wookiee
From Copenhagen
Now he's closing
Locked on
But her gorilla is a killer
Gonna terminate his fun...

'I know about a thing called love
I know it's what you're thinking of
So show you've got the iron, man
I know that you're no Padawan'

He's bending time to get near
To cross that final frontier
Security freaks
Now they're out their seats
As he quantum leaps
She breathes a word in his ear

'I know about a thing called love
I know it's what you're thinking of
So show you've got a Minuteman
I know that you're my Padawan'
