There once was a comic detective

Who had a unique bat perspective.

He had gadgets and jokes

‘Til the Hollywood folks

Said “Do more, but the fun is defective.”

Writer’s Strike or Poetic Justice?

I’m not sure which is better:

That Hollywood is on strike

Or that we finally see mindless machines

As movie writers’ equals?

Avatar, And The Poet Who Just Emerged From His Rock

There once was a billion-dollar movie

About some blue guys who were groovy.

I watched it tonight

And now I’ve seen the light

And I’m up to date with 2005. (Woohoo vee).

The heroes were shocked

When the villain they mocked

Turned out to be…

He Was All Willful And Majestic And Got Reunited With His Human Friend…

Tonight we watched a movie

About a very macho horse.

Was it a beautiful film? Yes!

And an excuse for a short poem? Of course!

Relationship Goals

“Hey girl”, I texted.

“What’s up?” She replied.

Then I flashed back to the first three minutes of Pixar’s masterpiece, “Up”

And inevitably cried.

Because “You’re Beautiful Just The Way You Are, And The Right Man Will Love You Forever” Is A Bigoted, Misogynist Message

Pixie dust and fairy farts,

Princess hair and fey Walmarts:

Some came from a movie I loved as a kid.

The others are movies that Disney just did.
