Chaos in 17 Lines

Chaos in 17 Lines
(The Still-Can't-Write-A-Sonnet-Or-Save-the-Sodding-World Blues)

Author: LookingForOctober
Prompt: Ghostworld
Rating: PG-13 because I never know what to rate things
Setting: End of Season 2 AU

Shit, there I was, that crazy day, the day we went to hell
I fought for love and happy meals, and left with love in tow
And hell if I cared if the damned Slayer failed, how could I sodding know
The pledge I made would pull me down as well.
Hell's full of nasty torments, but as demons we walked free
We put the red in chaos, we put screams in the night
But when she called I had to come, I had to join her fight
Kill Angel (bloody pleasure), feed Acathla herbal tea.
(And sandwiches with the crusts cut off. It's called poetic license, so sue me.)
Acathla spewed up the world. About like it sounds, only worse.
Bloody disgusting. Demonic digestion cannot be withstood,
And in this brave world of demons and folk, only Buffy and me see the curse.
Sickly and gray is the new sunset glow; they're all blind as a bear carved of wood.
So I'm sticking with her. I want red hot wings back, and she's the world's only nurse.
Yeah, it's just us alone in a dull ghostly world, but I want this to be understood
She's got no right to stare with my heart in her eyes, I'm not bloody misunderstood,
And I swear that she can't make me good. (Never. I'm the Big Bad here. Got that? Good.)

So clever! It's a bit like those songs that have such a happy tune, and then you listen to the words and realize they're terribly sad.

Heh. That's the thing about taking a small step into white hat territory: before long you can't find your way out.

This is fun!

Just as slippery as the other direction, under the right circumstances. :)

And thanks!
