Scotty at Normandy by Ryan Quinn Flanagan
It is hard to imagine the D-Day landings.
Single cruise ships these days have a tough time disembarking
in a safe and orderly fashion.
Everyone gets a stomach bug and the damn thing
is quarantined at sea for weeks.
Did you know Scotty was at Normandy?
Long before he was hurtling through space
playing Mr. Fix It for Captain Kirk.
It’s hard to imagine the Germans taking pot shots
at the chief engineer of the U.S.S Enterprise.
Even if I try.
