Here is Simon. Here is Jayne. They like fun.

archbishopm said she hated the verse form villanelle. To torment her I dug up the Wendy Cope villanelle called 'Reading Scheme'.

I had to turn it into a Firefly Slash Villanelle. Man, it was askin' for it.

Slash Villanelle

Here is Simon. Here is Jayne. They like fun.
Simon is very smart. Jayne is tall.
Look, Jayne, look! Look at the doc! See him run!

Here is Kaylee. She has baked a bun.
Simon hides in his bunk. Jayne has come to call.
Here is Simon. Here is Jayne. They like fun.

No Kaylee! Go away River! Come, Simon, come!
Kaylee likes Simon. She is nice. She likes them all.
Look, Jayne, look! Look at the doc! See him run!

The bunk is dark. In space there is no sun.
Let us peep! On tiptoe River! You are small!
Here is Simon. Here is Jayne. They like fun.

River cuts Jayne. Mal looks glum.
Then Jayne got stupid. The Blue Hands chase them all.
Look, Jayne, look! Look at the doc! See him run!

Simon has professional responsibilities. Jayne has a big gun.
Simon is lonely! He has lost it all!
Here is Simon. Here is Jayne. They like fun.
Look, Jayne, look! Look at the doc! See him run.

(on re-reading it's a bit of a crap villanelle, because it uses 'all' too often as a rhyme. Also won't make sense unless you know Firefly).
