BRING THE FUN IN
[rhetorical verse in Shakespearean sonnet form]

"HEY, I'VE DIED TWICE," SINGS BUFFY, and I laugh.

  "Once More With Feeling" had fun lines like that.

Dear Joss, I swear I'll "kill a fatted calf"

  if fun comes back. Please, don't think fun's "old hat."


When Buffy balanced poinancy and fun --

  the laughter - drama - action mixed just right

    in Whedon's magic cauldron -- we all won.

But some true fans now dread each Tuesday night.


What further sadness must our "friends" endure?

  All-gloomy Buffy, Willow, Xander? "Eeeeewww!!"

 Perhaps "insanity" will be the cure

   (no matter if "that scene" was fake or true).


Perhaps this whining is a waste of time.

Next episode may yield a diff'rent rhyme.
