VISIBLE CRUELTY (8-sonnet sequence)
PART 2


(3) WHICH BRINGS US TO OUR BUFFY EPISODE:

Already shown in BOLD-CAPS prev'ously,

the message written by the girl -- "in code,"

thought Willow -- but quite plain for you and me.


We in the audience have seen her past.

The girl who only sought to bring her soul

into communion found herself out-caste

where "mean-girls" hold the damned remote-control . . .


. . . of school-wide ratings of who's in and out.

The writers stacked her deck to make it worse.

Not even teachers saw her high hand shout,

"oh please just call on me." It was her curse . . .


. . . to end up in a ep. with no bad vamp:

Well, someone must play loser to our champ.



(4) AND SO ANOTHER "CRAZY LOSER" TALE'S

transmitted to a world that "knows it cold."

The ones who suffer, each sad one who fails

to find their place in high school, so we're told . . .


. . . is just one step from slaughter and mayhem.

You mix that angst with Hellmouth, and watch out!

But everywhere, we'll keep an eye on them.

AND NOW THE TWIST, some F.B. "Eyes" with clout . . .


. . . jumped in the ring when Buffy'd won the match,

and dragged the challenger to where she'd LEARN

to be a useful citizen. The catch?

"The powers that be" know schools will always turn . . .


. . . a few kids into killers we can't see.

They hate. They kill. Deniability
