(BUFFY-VERSE SERIES) SONNET #058-061 of 154
RESURRECTION'S A BITCAH
(a/k/a STAY, BAD BUFFY, STAY)

rhetorical verse in Shakespearean sonnet form
(a 4-sonnet sequence)

 }
{BVS_058_01.01} A BIG BAD BUFFY (with new Buffy hair)

{BVS_058_01.02} RETURNS to face the vampires of her town

{BVS_058_01.03} with new bad attitude: Hey, I don't care

{BVS_058_01.04} what anybody thinks. No "loser" clown.

 
{BVS_058_01.05} Her momentary death (last episode)

{BVS_058_01.06} replaced her Buffy Baby Talk with Lip.

{BVS_058_01.07} My friends, for all I care, can hit the road.

{BVS_058_01.08} I'm solo captain of this slaying ship . . .

 
{BVS_058_01.09} . . . that needs no fools. My hands are capable

{BVS_058_01.10} of executing my damned sacred role

{BVS_058_01.11} which seems for me so inescapable.

{BVS_058_01.12} (Hey, I must have a whole six-pack of soul.)

 
{BVS_058_01.13} It seems that dying only makes me mean.

{BVS_058_01.14} Move over Cordy, there's a brand new Queen.


{2}

{BVS_059_02.01} I'LL PUT THE TAPE ON HOLD to say one thing:

{BVS_059_02.02} I think Ms. Gellar plays "THE BAD GIRL" best.

{BVS_059_02.03} It's more than just that teasing, naughty zing

{BVS_059_02.04} she lathers on the men who've failed some test . . .

 
{BVS_059_02.05} . . . that Buffy has designed to cull the herd

{BVS_059_02.06} of all the helpless cattle in the way

{BVS_059_02.07} of slayer duty that's on her conferred

{BVS_059_02.08} with no escape, (When killed, she'll ricochet.)

 
{BVS_059_02.09} "I TRUST MYSELF." "COME ON," you, "KICK MY A**!"

{BVS_059_02.10} I LIKE THIS BETTER than B-Baby Talk.

{BVS_059_02.11} WITH BUFFY TOUGH, her friends might buy some gas

{BVS_059_02.12} and rev that journey on which they just walk.

 
{BVS_059_02.13} THEN Willow might well punch out Xander's lights.

{BVS_059_02.14} Drop fuzzy sweaters. Don Red Kevlar tights. {g}


{3}

{BVS_060_03.01} A TOUGH NEW WILLOW with her own trance band.

{BVS_060_03.02} No tech-wimp shadow to Buff's power point.

{BVS_060_03.03} When "good old Xander's" whipped all he could stand,

{BVS_060_03.04} he'd stop the stupid jokes and roll a joint.

 
{BVS_060_03.05} And Big Bad Buffy on her Sweet Sixteen

{BVS_060_03.06} would "burn ol' Angel down" -- but dust his bones

{BVS_060_03.07} if he showed up "all diff'rent," acting mean,

{BVS_060_03.08} and claiming not to have no telephones.

 
{BVS_060_03.09} Angelus would know better than to mess

{BVS_060_03.10} with Big Bad Buffy's heart -- he'd make the call

{BVS_060_03.11} to reaffirm his love, and to confess

{BVS_060_03.12} that his ol' evil nature's had a ball . . .

 
{BVS_060_03.13} . . . but even though he's lost his freakin' soul,

{BVS_060_03.14} before he'd break her heart, he'd eat hard coal.


{4}

{BVS_061_04.01} OF COURSE, JOSS WIMPED sweet Buffy back to form.

{BVS_061_04.02} He "spanked her inner moppet" with remorse.

{BVS_061_04.03} With just a short side-show of anger's storm,

{BVS_061_04.04} her ultra-violence would run its course . . .

 
{BVS_061_04.05} Through slaughter and through torture of her foes,

{BVS_061_04.06} she'd pulverize her issues . . . THEN SHE'D CRY

{BVS_061_04.07} until she's back to normal, where her woes

{BVS_061_04.08} are only 'bout her friends. SO LONG. GOODBYE . . .

 
{BVS_061_04.09} . . . TO MEAN, HELL-CAT BAD BUFFY. SEE. ALL GONE.

{BVS_061_04.10} Forgiveness by her "loser friends." How nice. {SARCASM WARNING}

{BVS_061_04.11} I HOPE YOU SEE the look that I've got on.

{BVS_061_04.12} I WISH she'd stay Bad Buffy. Call her "Spice."

 
{BVS_061_04.13} THEN "Spice & Spike" we'd call the brand new show.

{BVS_061_04.14} AND "Sam & Riley." Back to back, they'd go. {ewg}
