RE: BtVS 2.2 SOME ASSEMBLY REQUIRED

PARTLY LOVE
rhetorical verse in Shakesperean sonet form

PART 1

(1) A DEAD, HOT JOCK from lower, "loser" stock

is loved by his blood kin one slice too much.

His mother, zombified to lose son-jock.

His glory she relives -- else, out of touch.


His smarter "loser" brother brought him back.

FRATERNAL LOVE and science mixed to join

dead brother's broken flesh with life. // NEXT TRACK:

ROMANTIC LOVE'S fraternal . . . mixed with groin . . .


One special person's blood can make yours boil.

That special one can make you lose your head

and break the rules much higher than by Hoyle

(that masterpiece on games you may have read).


THIS STORY SAYS that love makes you insane.

But human love's not easy to explain.

(2) JUST WHY would Willow pine for Xander's kiss.

("A strange, off-putting" guy, as Drac will say.)

AND WHY does worldly Angel somehow miss

the sight of Buffy in the light of day?


With God-like duty to defend all souls

the Slayer shouldn't let her mind fixate

on rating some folk higher in some polls

of "Who I Should Save First". She cannot hate . . .


. . . one human more -- and so let that one die.

The Slayer should save ev'ry life the same.

And having friends and lovers means deny

your sacred duty. OH, YOU THINK THAT'S LAME?


WELL, being chosen means a sacrifice.

Slay duty means you don't roll love's strange dice.

(3) THIS MAY SEEM A LONG WAY from Frankenstein,

and chopping up some girls to make a bride

who'll love an ugly monster -- think he's "fine."

BUT human love is always mixed with PRIDE.


AND JUST AS Buffy's pride would not allow

a kiss from Xander 'cept when she was dead --

Pre-ugly jock thought Cordy was a cow.

BUT NOW he's happy to have Cordy's head . . .


. . . to smile at him, since he can't show his face.

(This silly story point ignores his class

which even end-zone dancing can't erase --

hot, snotty Cordy was too rich a lass.)



AND IF IT SEEMS my points have gone to hell,

the themes inside this story were pell-mell.

(4) ONE EPISODE BEFORE Bad Spike and Dru

inject ol' Sunnydale with their fresh blood . . .

SOME EPISODES ARE "FILLER" (one or two).

To me ol' "Some Assembly . . . " was a dud.


SO WHY waste all this time to sonnetize

a story line that didn't touch my heart.

WELL, SOMETIMES that which fails to tantalize

gives opportunity to take apart . . .


. . . and piece by piece assemble "something more."

NOT Bride Of Frankenstein . . . BUT God's strange
love


which says that those we'd hate, instead, adore.

THIS SONNET LEADS ME HERE: We need to shove . . .


. . . away from loving based upon our pride.


I've said enough. This tale, I set aside.
