Editor Christopher Writes – #PoemADayForAYear: 24/03/15

There was something about which I wanted to write a proper blog today but I have decided to try and turn it into a poem so this first part will be a little short again today but hopefully it will be worth it.

Here is a poem.

I want to see more films by Tim Burton.

I want to see Tim Burton original films,

not remakes or reimaginings.

I want to see a film by him with

Helena Bonham Carter and Johnny Depp in it.

Is there any other kind?

I want to see Helena Bonham Carter playing Johnny

Depp as Edward Scissorhands as that woman she plays in Big Fish.

I want to see Johnny Depp playing Helena Bonham Carter

as Hunter S Thompson.

OK, that’s not a Burton film but it would still

be incredible.

I want to see Benedict Cumberbatch in this film.

He is seemingly in everything else at the moment.

He shall play Helena Bonham Depp’s cheekbones.

I want to see One Direction do the music for this film,

but not the pop shit they do now. A proper heavy, dirty

rock song. It will be the biggest rock song in the world.

They will perform it at Download Festival where

Harry Styles will have his head bitten off

by Ozzy. The song will be written by Danny Elfman

in a Simon Cowell mask.

There will be no writer for this film.

Burton will just turn up with some drawings of

creepy trees surrounding a dark, twisting path and they

will improv from there. Ewan McGregor will have a cameo

as Tweedledum and Jack Skellingdee with Deep Roy.

This will be a film for the ages.

It will win every award.

It will break all box office records.

Unless, of course, Daniel Day-Lewis does another film.
