Oh if only they had got it right,

Those Magic Minds, those King of Screens,

If only they had brought it home,

So I could rest safely in my dreams…

If Sydney’s mom on Alias,

Irina Derevko of the Derevko clan,

Had found redemption at the end,

I would have been a happy man.

It’s Sydney again, but she from Scream,

It should’ve happened in Scream 4,

The time was ripe for her gruesome end,

Could’ve broken the genre once more.

And oh Lestat, that Vampire fiend,

Tom Cruise had done his part,

Aaliyah too when her turn came,

Round two should have been some art.

But then the horror, Lestat’s not blonde,

And that’s just where it starts.

Queen of the Damned, You failed me!

You’ve really hurt some hearts!

Now let me talk of X-Men, a Comic Fan I am,

Decisions made aplenty here have gasolined this flame,

But two in particular I can’t get past,

Listen close and understand my pain…

My fellow SAffer, Gavin Hood, C’mon Man,

How could you get it soooo wrong?

Wolverine; Deadpool; Sabretooth;

You’ve fed this sad sad song.

But can’t blame you for the next travesty

Of Chipmunk cheeks Mystique,

A villain? No now a heroine cos,

Jen Lawrence must be with ethi-que.

I now wait patiently for her evil turn,

It better be fast approaching,

Coz now I’m dealing Age of Apocalypse,

Which within my brain’s been encroaching.

_

Just so you all know that it’s not just the current,

I will travel back in time, just to say,

Francis Ford Copolla, with your talented daughter,

You ruined that trilogy’s day.

And finally, for this poem at least,

Because this issue is ever expanding,

Let’s think on the sad song of LadyHawke,

The cursed soundtrack which needed dismantling.

_

Oh it’s hard to admit there’s more to get wrong,

Those Magic Minds, those King of Screens,

There is no foreseeable end to the vicious cycle,

No Safety assured in my dreams.

This is my Tuesday contribution to The Blog Tag prompts on which I am currently participating, a poem, well Duh…

But maybe, just maybe, had I been on the creative team behind LadyHawke I could have contributed greatly to ensuring that that music never got out of the vault, but I was post-foetal back then, and really, Michelle Pfeiffer would have fallen head over heels with me, and fought on my behalf to eliminate Rutger Hauer from the production, and we could have had this (with cool music):

Ladyhawke and Soz
