AW, BUT SIR

 

Awesome spectacle, or God-awful mess?

What part did Xena, Warrior Princess

Play in the history of Ancient Greece?

She never helped search for the Golden Fleece!

Youíre more inspired by Ray Harryhausen

Than Homer, unless itís Homer Simpson

You have uppermost in your tiny mind.

Just for the record, I think you will find

That Virgil was a poet, not the pilot

Of Thunderbird Two, and youíre talking rot

So start to finish, so why donít you go

To the library not the video

Shop section on sword and sandal epics.

Old Steve Reeves movies are not biopics.

Forgive me for sounding a little rude,

But your work is awesome in its ineptitude

For an academic dissertation.

Rewrite it now without hesitation.

Read the damn books. Donít watch old films instead.

Put all thoughts of Xena out of your head.

I know itís a labour of Hercules

But I want this essay for Monday please!
