The Lyrics

If you search a lexicon,
it might be hard to find
a definition that’s succinct
for words like “Necrinomicon,”
but you would have to be blind
to miss this one in pixels or that’s inked.

“Parody” is such a simple word,
but is it easy to do?
Parody’s muse can get you quite stirred,
and one or two you might pursue.

When the time comes to write one,
you feel your pulse rate rise—
carpe parodiem…time to seize
the bull’s horns just above its face,
as sun lightens the skies;
you’ll also feel light and quite at ease.

“Parody,” an easy-to-grok word,
but is it easy to do?
Parody sometimes is quite absurd,
depending on the point of view.

You will soon discover
when you reach the end
of a well-done parody:
The time has come to send
it to this site, rapidly
With laughter overbent,
readers “Ho-ho!”

Do not sweat orthography
in phrases you turn
Here is a site that you can check on:
“Burlesque,” “put-on,” and “travesty”
Are synonyms; we churn
out takeoffs; it’s not treatises that we spawn.

“Parody,” an easy-to-grok word
To observe the most on view,
pound the keys and point that cursor toward
the site with the parodic crew.
