RE: BtVS 2.1 "When She Was Bad"

RESURRECTION'S A BITCAH
(aka STAY, BAD BUFFY, STAY)

rhetorical verse in Shakesperean sonnet form

PART 1



(1) A BIG BAD BUFFY (with new Buffy hair)

returns to face the vampires of her town

with new bad attitude: Hey, I don't care

what anybody thinks. No "loser" clown.



Her momentary death (last episode)

replaced her Buffy Baby Talk with Lip.

My friends, for all I care, can hit the road.

I'm solo captain of this slaying ship . . .


. . . that needs no fools. My hands are capable

of executing my damned sacred role

which seems for me so inescapable.

(Hey, I must have a whole six-pack of soul.)


It seems that dying only makes me mean.

Move over Cordy, there's a brand new Queen.



(2) I'LL PUT THE TAPE ON HOLD to say one thing:

I think Ms. Gellar plays "THE BAD GIRL" best.

It's more than just that teasing, naughty zing

she lathers on the men who've failed some test . . .


. . . that Buffy has designed to cull the herd

of all the helpless cattle in the way

of slayer duty that's on her conferred

with no escape, (When killed, she'll ricochet.)


"I TRUST MYSELF." "COME ON," you, "KICK MY A**!"

I LIKE THIS BETTER than B-Baby Talk.

WITH BUFFY TOUGH, her friends might buy some gas

and rev that journey on which they just walk.


THEN Willow might well punch out Xander's lights.

Drop fuzzy sweaters. Don Red Kevlar tights.

[CONTINUED]


(3) A TOUGH NEW WILLOW with her own trance band.

No tech-wimp shadow to Buff's power point.

When "good old Xander's" whipped all he could stand,

he'd stop the stupid jokes and roll a joint.


And Big Bad Buffy on her Sweet Sixteen

would "burn ol' Angel down" -- but dust his bones

if he showed up "all diff'rent," acting mean,

and claiming not to have a telephone.


Angelus would know better than to mess

with Big Bad Buffy's heart -- he'd make the call

to reaffirm his love, and to confess

that his ol' evil nature's had a ball . . .


. . . but even though he's lost his freakin' soul,

before he'd break her heart, he'd eat hard coal.


(4) OF COURSE, JOSS WIMPED sweet Buffy back to form.

He "spanked her inner moppet" with remorse.

With just a short side-show of anger's storm,

her ultra-violence would run its course . . .


Through slaughter and through torture of her foes,

she'd pulverize her issues . . . THEN SHE'D CRY

until she's back to normal, where her woes

are only 'bout her friends. SO LONG. GOODBYE . . .


. . . TO MEAN, HELL-CAT BAD BUFFY. SEE. ALL GONE.

Forgiveness by her "loser friends." How nice. SARCASM WARNING

I HOPE YOU SEE the look that I've got on.

I WISH she'd stay Bad Buffy. Call her "Spice."


THEN "Spice & Spike" we'd call the brand new show.

AND "Sam & Riley." Back to back, they'd go.
