Rhetorical Verse (in Shakespearean sonnet form) about BtVS#11 "INVISIBLE GIRL"
Posted by: forensicpopouri - Apr 15, 2002, 10:15 AM


VISIBLE CRUELTY (8-sonnet sequence)


THE QUALITY OF BEAUTY is much strained

when artists stretch beyond their competence

to capture the complexity contained

in social interaction's violence.


In prehistoric days, the shunned would die.

Except for Ayla,* who could stand alone

without the tribe? No need to crucify.

There was no pizza shop the cursed could call.


If excommunicated, you would starve.

If no one LISTENED to your pleading voice.

When tribal eyes refused to LOOK, they carve

you from what's life itself. No second choice.


But do not turn to Hollywood to LEARN

what, first-hand, "the unpopular" discern.


(*CLAN OF THE CAVE BEAR)



(2) YOU SAY, "OLD HIST'RY." Now the world has changed.

If school tribes shut you out, that's just a game

that soon will fade -- UNLESS you are deranged

enough to care enough to kill and maim . . .


. . . the ones who choose to never see your face,

or, "better yet," who choose to take the time

to fire word paint-balls -- mark you for disgrace.

With words and silence girl-slights are "sublime."


They stand in "huddles" giving others "deaths" --

those with'ring stares of condescension meant

to say "we will not deign to waste our breaths

on worthless nothings. Stay out of our tent!"



Exclusion that the popular enforce

on "others." What "the cool" teach in their course.


[CONTINUED IN PART 2]


you speak

CORRECTION: There was no pizza shop the cursed could CALL.

THAT LINE SHOULD READ:

There was no pizza shop the cursed could phone.


NOTE: Must rhyme with "alone." ("Call" and "Phone" mean the
same, so I thought one thing, and wrote another. I.E., My Bad.)

..I'm so glad you mastered *big* in html.

But, you could get 2 Sonnets on one postas it can support 1800 characters. About the number in Shakespear's Plays?
