SONNETIZING BtVS EPISODE #8 "ME ROBOT, YOU JANE"

BOOK BAD, CHAT BAD, NEW BAD, MY BAD
rhetorical verse in Shakespearean sonnet form

PART 1


(1) BOOK BAD

TO BIND AN EVIL POWER IN A BOOK

with incantations laying down the rules

by which that force be bound . . . with one strange hook

that seemed designed by TV-writing fools.


TO WIT: Its pages can't be read again

without unleashing all the bad they bound.

What fools enchanters be who code that when

communication flows, the world's unwound.


Some claim there are some "clever" metaphors

(a codicil of ev'ry Buffy script) --

insightful subtlety that opens doors

into the aching heart of youths (tight-lipped), . . .


. . . to points of view on teenage worldly pain.

You open up a book. All hell unchain?



(2) CHAT BAD
SARCASM / IRONY WARNING

AND, HEAVEN KNOWS, THE INTERNET IS VILE.

A predatory place where lies run free

from all constraint, and virtue falls to guile.

A place where there's no firm identity.


And knowledge, love, and comfort seem one click

away. Whenever you want to access

your choice desires (your tastes -- be hip, or hick).

It's all available without the mess . . .


. . . of gaining the agreement of your fate.

Those surface qualities that leave their mark

upon your countenance -- how do you rate

within the coolness factors hierarch?


Real life left Willow with a Xander hole.

She sought online what she lacked in his poll.
