THE BUFFYVERSE & THE UNIVERSAL

 
(BUFFY-VERSE SERIES) SONNET #038 of 154
A SUNNYDALE SERMON OVERLOOKED
(IN "THE PUPPET SHOW")
The Irony of Snyder's Talent Show & The Scoobies Oedipal Stupidity

rhetorical verse in Shakespearean sonnet form

 }
{BVS_038_01.01} A MINOR TALE not in the major arc

{BVS_038_01.02} of Buffy history -- except one point:

{BVS_038_01.03} A "Nazi" principal (who once played "Quark")

{BVS_038_01.04} is introduced into Joss Whedon's joint.

 
{BVS_038_01.05} REJECTING "understanding" out of hand,

{BVS_038_01.06} HE SAID THAT "discipline" is "what kids need."

{BVS_038_01.07} The irony: That Snyder would demand

{BVS_038_01.08} participation in what best would breed . . .

 
{BVS_038_01.09} . . . the thing he's just dismissed . . . with his main goal.

{BVS_038_01.10} A TALENT SHOW -- where art's hard discipline

{BVS_038_01.11} is matched with understanding your own soul.

{BVS_038_01.12} He thinks they're enemies. But they're blood kin. //

 
{BVS_038_01.13} That "Oedipus" with Scoobies was a scream.

{BVS_038_01.14} But sad: These heroes chose "their least" to team.
