The Lyrics

Doin' late homework,
Can't make a poem work,
Too complicated..or just too plain
Off on a tantrum,
Fingers I can drum
Writin' Rhode Island, with Texas on brain..

Splashin' around again in Amiwriters-ville,
Delete 'em all..they're silly-ass songs
Themes and right words
Flutter away like the birds..
In this game..many writes are wrongs..

Dream up a title
One that sounds vital,
"Sniffy, I'm genius"..'A Strawberry Whore'
Then run it through 'Search'
Downward, my hopes lurch
Curses! and verses!'s been done before..

Rackin' my brains again, in Amiwriters-ville
Drink'n' black coffee, chew'n' Teaberry gum
All efforts lame,
I'm shooting guns with no aim
Writer's block..I sure have got some

Where is that strike zone?
Gone like a cyclone
No keyboard my mind agleam
I could throw the chips in,
And lay low..the ship's in
But parody writing' recurring dream

Fingers ballet again, in Amiwriters-ville
Pepper, too much..or too little salt
Usin' up night,
Strivin' to get it just right..
But If I don't..well it's Sniffy's fault

When I don't..hey, it's Sniffy's fault

AFW - I recognize the scenery here. This is a splendid tour of the whole landscape. Jimmy has Parrotheads, but we have the Parodyheads! ;D

"The ship's in"? The legend lives on.

As a long time Amiwriter, I dug this but I was lost on the "Sniffy" references.

Thanks, OMR...good pun reference...and thanks, Michael...and Agrimorfee...I guess I should have explained in the notes: Some may recall from former parodies.. Sniffy is a pet dog...not a real dog, the kind that's easy to care for, a stuffed couch alter ego.

Again, I apologize about the late reply---This gem was the perfect witty ditty 'bout the nitty gritty o' Righter's block!

How many times do I get an idea while I'm driving or sleeping and not in a position to write it down. Then I forget the whole thing. Probably much to the relief of everyone here who might otherwise have been exposed to it.

Thanks, TJC...and thanks, Patrick...while driving is where more fertile ideas spring forth for me...Maybe because the conscious mind's occupied..and it gives the subconscious mind free reign to run... I usually, park somewhere and write it down

Sir l'Air de Farce, ~Lord Park und Write~ . . . at least you're not texting at der wheel, Sir ! this is very informative about writer's and their secrets as to how they do all this . . . but I have heard 'subParodies' as I drive in the early hours to work: oBama said there'd be lays like this, there'd be lays amiss, oBama said . . . where do these things come from ?

Thanks, NorCal...Our subC is like a sponge or a recording device..It mixes low flying thoughts from previous hours, days, etc. and when it doesn't recall verbatim, it makes up it's own words or should write have the knack
