(BUFFY-VERSE SERIES) SONNETS #032_-033 of 154
ANGEL [THE GOOD / THE BAD]

rhetorical verse in Shakespearean sonnet form
(a 2-sonnet sequence)

 
THE GOOD [BUFFY TURNS "GRAY"] }

{BVS_032_01.01} THE MOMENT BLACK & WHITE |

TURNS into gray --

{BVS_032_01.02} when first-love's face reveals a fright'ning side,

{BVS_032_01.03} when unexpected darkness pierces day --

{BVS_032_01.04} your pointed clarity cannot abide . . .

 
{BVS_032_01.05} . . . within parameters of Sunday School.

{BVS_032_01.06} (BUT NO, that's wrong. Perhaps that's THE one spot

{BVS_032_01.07} forgiveness and redemption's labeled cool.)

{BVS_032_01.08} Can chosen slayers' say: "Oh, I forgot . . .

 
{BVS_032_01.09} . . . you drank the blood of thousands in your past"?

{BVS_032_01.10} How can a sacred duty overlook

{BVS_032_01.11} a clear bi-polar judgement, and recast

{BVS_032_01.12} each situation -- not "go by the book?"

 
{BVS_032_01.13} The Buffyverse transcended on that night

{BVS_032_01.14} the slayer rule of who she has to fight.

{ # # #


#33 THE BAD [OF VAMPIRES WITH GUNS]}

{BVS_033_02.01} NOW SOMETIMES WRITERS DO A STUPID THING . . .

{BVS_033_02.02} LIKE when they gave vamp Darla forty-fives

{BVS_033_02.03} (9 millimeter pistols?) Let them sing

{BVS_033_02.04} at high velocity. How many lives, . . .

 
{BVS_033_02.05} . . . pray, tell me, does a vampire slayer get?!?

{BVS_033_02.06} IF VAMPIRE LAW ALLOWS them to pack heat --

{BVS_033_02.07} shotguns, and Uzi's, Darla's hand-gun set --

{BVS_033_02.08} how long before each slayer's just raw meat?

 
{BVS_033_02.09} With wooden stakes and spry fast flying kicks,

{BVS_033_02.10} how long before "The Chosen One's" just "Choice"

{BVS_033_02.11} ground beef in well-armed vampires' taco mix?

{BVS_033_02.12} A dozen vamps take aim. And then rejoice!

 
{BVS_033_02.13} A missile-toting Buffy's day will come . . .

{BVS_033_02.14} But pistol-packing Darla was "plain dumb."
