(BUFFY-VERSE SERIES) SONNET #025 of 154
A VERY SPECIAL TEA TIME:
Writing The Ballad of SMG

rhetorical verse in Shakespearean sonnet form

 }
{BVS_025_01.01} LAST NIGHT I scanned the Bronze |

and watched "The Witch."

{BVS_025_01.02} About "The Witch," I choose to hold my tongue.

{BVS_025_01.03} But in the Bronze I found a post for which

{BVS_025_01.04} I felt compelled to post what must be sung.

 
{BVS_025_01.05} THE TOPIC POSTER who had caught my eye

{BVS_025_01.06} was going_through_the_motions |

(their Bronze name).

{BVS_025_01.07} AN ENGLISH CLASS ASSIGNMENT made them sigh.

{BVS_025_01.08} THEY HAD TO WRITE A BALLAD which would frame . . .

 
{BVS_025_01.09} . . . the story of our Buffy's S.M.G.

{BVS_025_01.10} NOW, ballads have more slack than sonnets do,

{BVS_025_01.11} AND SO, I told them that a useful key

{BVS_025_01.12} to telling Gellar's tale was Going Through . . .

 
{BVS_025_01.13} . . . The Motions' tune. Rewrite that great song's lines.

{BVS_025_01.14} FOR TEA TIME: Write G's song in those confines!

{ # # #

FOR EXAMPLE: SUNG TO THE TUNE OF
GOING THROUGH THE MOTIONS

Once upon a time, a girl named Gellar

got a job at sweet sixteen.

Acting on TV -- so well, so stellar

Won an Emmy fast. First year on the scene.

 
The OLD STAR on the show said "No. No. No. . . ."

"Sweet Sarah's got to go."

 
"Young Sarah Gellar's too precocious,

for her own damned good."

"I must run Miss Gellar from my hood." . . . . . .

 
TO BE CONTINUED . . . BY YOU? . . . AT TEA TIME
