(BUFFY-VERSE SERIES) SONNET #8 of 154
DOUBLEMEAT MORALITY

 }
{BVS_008_01.01} LET'S THINK THIS THROUGH: ... WHEN Buffy had found out

{BVS_008_01.02} that DoubleMeat's a lie -- a scam of sorts,

{BVS_008_01.03} a veggie fraud -- SHE DID NOT rush to shout

{BVS_008_01.04} the news to all, ... nor TELL it to the courts.

 
{BVS_008_01.05} NO, BUFFY would NOT "BLACKMAIL" THEM, of course.
{smirk}

{BVS_008_01.06} Well ... NOT for cash to keep THEIR SECRET HUSHED.

{BVS_008_01.07} NO big-bucks pay-off -- though she had the force.

{BVS_008_01.08} BUT YES, to be REHIRED where she'd been flushed.

 
{BVS_008_01.09} A petty blackmail ... to go BACK TO WORK.

{BVS_008_01.10} Join in the fraud -- for "chump change" SHE'D KEEP QUIET.

{BVS_008_01.11} She'd smile and sell the two-meat lie. A CLERK ...

{BVS_008_01.12} ... WHO HIDES THE TRUTH from those who come to buy'it.

 
{BVS_008_01.13} Would she have kept an Enron lie, as well?

{BVS_008_01.14} Workplace morality -- now, folks, that's hell.
