NOTE (RHYME CRIME)
Posted by: forensicpopouri - May 15, 2002, 4:44 PM 1 of 10

The second sonnet of today's sequence has a rhyme crime <g>
(I mean . . . I forgot to rhyme two lines that should rhyme according to
the rules of writing sonnets)


If you think up a line that will fix the crime <smile>
please post it at the SONNET FEEDBACK THREAD at tid=80583
http://www.buffy.com/bronze_posts.jsp?tid=80583

PLEASE DON'T POST IN THIS THREAD . . . 'cause it pushes the sonnets into oblvion (off the page). Thanks.

TEA TIME SONNETS #131-134/154
Rhetorical verse in Shakespearean sonnet form


BIG BAD WILLOW/SPIKE - RE: "Villains" Episode #120 of BtVS


(1) OSIRIS SAYS: "You may not violate

the law of nat'ral order.
" WELL, SINCE WHEN?

When Buffy flat-lined, was it not too late

for Wil to lift the bullet, heal her skin?


Did Wil's hate-power make O. suck his face

into his own mouth. (Wow! That's quite a trick!)

Dead Tara "proves" hate trumps a loving grace.

BUT EVER SINCE BAD WILLOW gave a lick . . .


. . . to her sweet doppelganger, I've said "Yay!"

for Big Bad Willow's character. It cooks.

It's not the girl-on-girl thing, guys, OK?

It's confidence and surety that hooks . . .


. . . me where I live . . . in Hollywood, so vile.

TO HELL WITH MEEKNESS . . . BIG BAD WIL HAS STYLE!

(2) TOO BAD we can't have heroes half as swell.

A better Buffy would not make me wretch

with goody-goody inconsistency.

Sometimes she punches humans. Better fetch . . .


. . . the slayer handbook . . . and highlight each page

when Buffy loses track of how to play

the hero game. Perhaps it's just when rage

upsets her coma dream, she's not OK.



I RAISE that ". . . Normal" thought, . . . because to me

it opens up our minds to greater slack.

Instead of flaming those who don't agree

with our perspective . . . we can simply smack . . .


. . . them hard upsides the head with: "It's a dream."

I love to watch fans moan and howl and scream. <ewg>

(3) I LOVE that mayaroza's all upset

about "the awful mess" that Noxon's made

of ev'rything. And ususally she'll get

a whole lot of things right. . . DON'T BE AFRAID . . .


You're not about to hear me amplify

more mayaroza Noxon-bashing here.

Is mayaroza gal, or is she guy?

I better watch my back . . .or she might hear!


Not Noxon, mayaroza. But who knows?

WHICH SEEMS A LONG, LONG WAY FROM TUESDAY NIGHT.

But you should know by now that's how it goes

with sonnet writing
. . . You just fly a kite.


The winds of Willow blew me down this path

Gale-force of will, unleashed by Willow's wrath.

(4) ENJOYMENT OF WIL dropping holding back.

To see her out from under Buffy's thumb.

(It's all dream. Don't fret of reason's lack!)<g>

To see her fling Miss Buffy on her bum . . .


Then say she will do what in hell she wills.

And (Yay!) there goes ol' Xander on his ass.

"THE MORAL" IS, of course, that anger kills . . .

your soul . . . so evil forces can harrass . . .


. . . you into being on the darker side.

LIKE SPIKE IN AFRICA seeks out the death

of all the kindness he's let slip inside.

Resentment flares his nostrils with no breath.


Thank God for Season Seven's evil pair.

Bad Spike. Bad Willow. Dream? Hell I don't care!.

HAIKU CODA

I am way too tired
to rewrite these sonnet-things.
But they're still sonnets.

REMINDER: Tea Time in L.A. (M-F) comes to a close the day after final Buffy of the season 5/22
Posted by: forensicpopouri - May 15, 2002, 8:03 AM 6 of 10

Final episode of Tea Time in L.A. (7-8 PM BRONZE TIME) is Wed. 5/22

BUT NOTE: That a weekly version (still being designed) to be called
TeaTimeSunday 4-5PM BRONZE TIME (every Sunday)
begins on June 2



NOTES REGARDING SONNETS & TEA TIME IN L.A. (7-8 PM BRONZE) Full Sonnet Index Below
Posted by: forensicpopouri - May 15, 2002, 8:02 AM 7 of 10

NOTE: The insane idea of putting Buffy thoughts
in Shakespearean sonnet form . . . is based on the even more
insane idea that you might want to give it a try yourself.

For a "sonnetized" explanation of why this is not insane <g> . . . you might read
my previous Bronze threads WHY I POST IN SHAKESPEAREAN SONNETS:
PART 1: tid=48156 PART 2: tid=48152

THEN if that challenge seems like an interesting one to you, look for TEA TIME in L.A.
at 7:00 PM BRONZE TIME daily . . . which is truly strange. <g> But it just
might save the world. <ewg> In any case, you can brag about being able to
write better than fill-in-the-blank. <g>
