LUNCHTIME in L.A. ... Sonnetized Season 6 Satire(?): Praising Riley &Sam's Grown-up-itude


Joss has said Season 6 is about "growing up" . . . and Marti showed us the "perfect" fantasy

Like the subway breeze that blew up Marilyn's skirt
another burst of mystical sewer gas blows up
the ever-open nostrils of forensicpopouri . . .

Against his will, yet another Shakespearean sonnet
drips from his fingers.



WHEN SAM & RILEY rose into the air

they left behind an image to recall

of demon-fighting .grown-ups with true flair.

(No Buffy babytalk. And they're both tall.)


In Sam we saw a woman with no flaws.

If she missteps, she catches it with grace.

(Hey, even Willow had to fake cat claws

to say she "hated her" for Buffy's "face.")


In happy fantasy she'd be my wife.

Resourceful, with no misery in sight.

Sam deals with Buffy-duty -- risks her life

to save the lives of others. While a night . . .


. . . of endless sorrow seems our Buffy's path

and the whole Scooby gang's.
Redo the math!

Oh gosh! What had he done?!? The SMG fanclub will
rip out his fingernails... It was the gas. The sewer gas
made him say it. But would they ever believe him?


NOTE: Yesterday's equally sewer-gas inspired, but
much more insightful <smile> sonnet may be sniffed at

A Stab At Poetry

Here's a little dittie:

In five years time
On a night sublime
Sam will awake
And wish she could forsake

This life of demon fighting
Under really lousy lighting
Black Kevlar has lost it's appeal
She needs to know when's her next meal

A bath, a home, a kidlet or two
These are the things that she'll want to do
"You've changed" he'll snort
"You haven't" she'll retort

And exposed will be the ups and downs
Of which Riley spoke, so profound



yes, unspeakably horrible . . . but I'll check back at tea time ...

NOTE: After consulting with several British folk, I have decided
to disregard everything they said about tea time. <smile>

I hereby proclaim tea time in Santa Monica to be 4:00 PM (Pacific).
