Parody Written by:

The Lyrics

Ms. Plath
You're depressing the class
You could use a new attitude

And Michel A.
It's no problem that you're gay
But please don't draw men in the nude

What's this "Off with her head"
Mr. Carroll that's cruel
And not the kind of violence
Fit for kids still in school

And what's this trash
Mr. Doyle? We will pass
Your sleuth's a major cokehead
And that message is just wrong

Can't have you villains hurting children
Moms and Jack B. Thompson
Need us to police stuff
Spurning controversy, yeah

James B., your propensity
To hang out with kids that ain't yours, could
Be seen as not at all P.C.
Some might think you broke social mores

And DeBergerac
While we like your prose
Some pages seem hateful
To the differently nosed

Furthermore, Rick Ross
We won't let you be the boss
The language that you use is too strong

Vincent van Gogh you don't look wholesome
Pound you are a scoundrel
Ban Ty he's a bad guy
Mission against trash is, ours

We cannot print this thing Mr. Kipling
Some of the pages seem quite racist
Can't allow an opera by that Wagner
Can't do your plays here Mr. Shakespeare
It's hard to handle all that scandal
More buddy, less bloody
Ms. Plath, too

Yes, we will dispense of what's offensive
You can't avoid our time and space ship
We fight for moms and Jack B. Thompson

Clever literary romp.... though I'm voting 555, '451' might be more appropriate!

William S. Burroughs and Degas would have fit very well in this parody

Classy and funny. At least Wagner is allowed in Israel, but I wish the Bayreuth Festspielhaus could be used to perform works by other composers, such as Handel's Messiah or - The Producers.

To that list you can add "Artificial Flowers" by none other than Mr. Darin himself. Five days without homework.

Good stuff, even if I didn't get all of the references (and I feel embarrassed that I don't). Support Banned Books Week! (whenever that is).
