HAIKU PROLOGUE

Season Six's end
returns us to true balance
in the Buffyverse.



TEA TIME SONNETS #151-154 of 154
Rhetorical verse in Shakespearean sonnet form


154


(1) THERE'S NOTHING NEED BE SAID when all is right.

The Buffyverse is balanced once again.

With tears of joy I ended Tuesday night.

To verse beyond that perfect pause . . . a sin.


AND SO I'll turn my versifying soul

(inspired by Spike's surprise) to Tea Time's end.

Like Dawn and Buffy's climb out of a hole.

Like Willow's black . . . and Giles's white arts blend.


THE TEA TIME THREADS' complexity resolves --

I hope with half the beauty of our source.

THE BUFFY WORLD 'round which our moon revolves.

THE JOSS-DRAWN MAP on which we chart our course . . .


. . . through concepts deep enough for PhDs

to spend a whole day talking Buffy-ese.

(2) I PAUSE NOW to stick in a pers'nal ad.

No, not for love, but sponsorship to go

to Norwich England. One full day (Egad!)

of lots of Buffy sentences. You know, . . .


. . . an egghead conf'rence of high Buffy-talk.

October nineteenth. "Bloody sodding hell.

The slayer diagrammed with blackboard chalk,

complete with wanker-academic smell."



I'm sure that's what you're thinking. Well, this too:

Would Shakespeare stick an ad right in his verse?

WELL DON'T YOU KNOW Will's sonnets had to do

with keeping sponsorship. This is no worse.


WELL ANYWAY, that ends my plea for cash.

SO BACK TO TEA TIME'S END. I smell corn mash.


(3) That's right, there was a trial in Tennessee.

In Lynchburg where Jack Daniels rules supreme.

WHERE'S BUFFY in this trial of folks that tea?

SHE'S ON THE JURY . . . eating some ice cream . . .


. . . to keep her cool, 'cause she's been getting hot

like all the vis'ting ladies . . . at the sight

of one fine, red-haired holyman who's not

the least conceited . . . though he's always right. <ewg>


IF NOXON can have Xander save the earth,

THEN "good ol' me" can star in these few lines.

AND, HEY GUYS, I'm the mother giving birth

to all the Tea Time fun and monkeyshines.


SO I can write whatever that I choose.

AND IF it's boring. HEY, OK, just snooze.

(4) BUT WAKE UP NOW . . . we've made the final turn.

One hundred fifty four, this sonnet makes.

You'd think by now forensic could discern

when to discard strange lines . . when his verse takes . . .


. . . a lazy turn down roads without a map.

Like Y TU MAMÁ TAMBIÉN . . . three souls

who by the grace of God find in their lap

a dream they conjured up, yet still consoles.


Although they made it up . . . yet it was there.

From darkness they awoke to sparkling dawn.

And fish and beer arrived by sea. A prayer

was answered that was never counted on.


I feel the same way ending Season Six.

A beautif'lly adjusted Buffy-mix.



[THE END]

insane idea that you might want to give it a try yourself.
