The Lyrics

Whiskey Liver took my life
I'm nothing but a memory
Left three children and a wife
I didn't take good care of me...

Whiskey Liver, no transplant
Unqualified to be in line
Doc said, "quit" I said, "I can't!"
This cemetery home's now mine...

The ground is cold, it makes me shiver
That whiskey soaked my brain,
And the devil took my soul
Unheeded all the warnings,
Never paid no mind,
Now, I'm just worm food in this six foot hole..

Whiskey Liver took my life
I'm nothing but a memory
Made a widow of my wife,
I didn't take good care of me....

..No, I didn't take good care of me...

I sure hope that 'pickled person pate' didn't harm any of those little worms...shoudn't there be some "Health warning signs"? I'll bet if it were out here in California there WOULD's ~ ~ ~

Well made parody AFW. I won't vote this as I DKTOS and if I did I'd probably not 5 it on funny anyway.

Thanks, Alvin, Paul, Rick C, John, and Red Ant....and not meant to be funny...perhaps biting satire..

AFW, it IS funny you mention that...the piece I did yesterday did not strike me as all that funny from the writing end...although I did recognize comic elements in many of the lines...but most of the reader's felt it was...and I saw how when I went back through it...depends on how you read and what voice you put to it...when I read yours this morning it felt the same way other reader's felt mine was funny...and when I read it again now I see the more serious elements...just by considering it from a different angle or sense...putting the emphasis on the sadder lines rather than the funny. Parody-reading/writing inquiry - are 'morning' reads...where the reader is looking at a lot of the parodies as soon as or shortly after the postings have been updated more likely to see humor in darkly-toned pieces? Probably an item for the "Messageboard" section...not here...boy, I read this again and it is very much like my "drug" piece from yesterday...someone commented on mine that it was "Black humour"...see if they find this the same way...not trying to influence anyone...just musing out loud...maybe I should shut up...but I'm more than a little intrigued now...Hel...mmmpphh...(muffled sound of commenter being gagged by other parody writer's)...

I like the OS, Willie, and your parody.

Thanks Paul....and for your added comments...I agree with you...and like Clinton would say, "It all depends on what your intrepretation of the word, Funny, is..." There are many degrees and takes on that word, funny, I guess.. Some time back, someone made a comment that since all parodies are not intended to be funny, the writers should not lose points in that category, when they're not..Perhaps added wording, instead of just, "How Funny" might help..

Almost forgot.....and thanks, Royce
