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!
