“No fate” is an iconic phrase from the seminal blockbuster, Terminator 2: Judgment Day (1991). It’s carved into a wooden bench, by Sarah Connor (Linda Hamilton). May The Verse Be With You has previously paid homage to The Terminator himself, Arnold Schwarzenegger (Arnie!). The tribute to him was eponymously named “Arnie”, his now definitive title. What an absolute legend!
No Fate (Except for Mullets)
“Come with me if you want to live . . .”
said Mr Mullet-man, thrown out of time,
with nothing else, except his life to give,
his somber cry the sounding of fate’s chime
Young Sarah Connor also had bad hair,
but her locks were the least of her concern
Kyle told his tale; Sarah felt despair
at the direction her life soon would turn . . .
He taught her we must fight and all must strive,
(and that the future still has mullets too!)
if we are to live freely and survive
all Sky Net does, that we have taught it to
So, out of time we must carve and create
paths our lives lead, because there is no fate . . .
The Terminator (1984) is a truly outstanding masterpiece, for many reasons. Even the bad haircuts can’t change how it looks, visually. The only sequel worth bothering with is Terminator: Dark Fate (2019). You can read our review of Terminator: Dark Fate. Sadly, it lacks mullets, and Michael Biehn. At least we know that mullets are future proof – phew! Stay safe dear readers, and see you next week!
