The Monster Thought Of The Waldensians

When the knight saw that she was truly beautiful and young, he joyfully clasped her in his arms, his heart filled with happiness. He kissed her a thousand times over, and she obeyed him in everything which might give him happiness or pleasure. Thus they lived all their lives in perfect joy.

“The Wife of Bath”
The Canterbury Tales

Supervillains must never let down their guard, and they always must give consideration to even seemingly unthinkable contingencies.

I’m writing, here, about the beginning and end
of a monster movie about a giant snake.

The beginning is a beautiful woman’s butt
in Russia where life is hard for everybody
and everybody has to be tough to survive.

The ending is a big explosion in a lab
where soldiers, scientists, business people and spies
hope to profit from a giant snake they’ve captured.

I guess it might look like Russia but the movie
was filmed in Bulgaria. And the beautiful
actress with the sexy butt and Russian accent
looks tough, but she’s a cutie from Australia.

In Europe the pages of the Reformation
turned on the monster thought of the Waldensians
that everybody, whenever they wanted to,
should be able to read and think about the words
of the gospels without having to contract out
those tasks to a James Bond-type from the Vatican.

In Britain the pages of the Reformation
turned on the desire of a king for a younger
and more beautiful wife and the children she might
deliver to him to carry on his business.

I like that monster film about the giant snake.
There’s nothing British in it. And the only thing
that’s kind of British—a James Bond-type U.S. spy—
gets eaten by the snake before the snake is killed.

I guess it’s good that books are dead now at the end
and we have movies. Or “good.” Everybody knows
everything in movies—every thing—is pretend.
