Last night, on Conan O’Brien’s Tonight Show, the man-who-was-Kirk brought a poetic interpretation to the Alaskan Governor’s farewell speech.

For the O’Brien set up, click here. To read Palin’s full remarks, click here. To see the Palin poem in its proper glory, with line breaks and all, follow me to the jump.

ALSO: Salon’s Alex Koppelman reminds me that nothing will ever match Shatner doing Elton John’s Rocketman.

FINALLY: Since we are already playing this game, here is Leonard Nimoy, aka Spock, singing “Bilbo Baggins.” Really bad.

Alaska, America Soaring By Sarah Palin

America soaring through nature’s finest show

Denali, the great one, soaring under the midnight sun.  And then

the extremes.

In the winter time it’s the frozen road that is

competing with the view of ice fogged

frigid beauty.

The cold though, doesn’t it

split

the

Cheechakos

from

the

Sourdoughs?

And then in the summertime

such extreme summertime

about a hundred and fifty degrees hotter than

just some months ago,

than just some months from now,

with fireweed blooming along the frost heaves and merciless rivers

that are rushing and carving  and reminding us that here

Mother Nature

wins.
