Another Atlanta Film Festival piece that I reviewed is up. You can read it here.
I must note, though, I don’t think my editor knew I was parodying a certain song (I probably should’ve mentioned it). Thus, some of the rhythm and syllabic particulars were altered a bit. Here is the original:
Alice Blue Dreams
On a Monday she starts working
Tuesday, she’s not eating
And by Wednesday
She’s a freak.
Her eyes see, she knows you
Not fragile, Alice Blue
Teeth sharpen, watch her seethe.
Try, with her and you won’t last
You can barely stand back up
So just give up.
Smell workplace slime, no sun in sight
And she’s still toiling
You pledged eternally
Don’t even joke with her, oh no
She’ll knee you in the seams
You can’t be what you seem
Because Alice, Alice, Alice Blue needs
Alice, Alice, Alice Blue feeds.

Pic cred: Alice Blue.
