Parody

I'm a parody!  What are you?
Are you some kind of parody too?
Then there would be a pair of us
And this would be hilarious

How dreary-to-be Serious!
How public-read aloud
Rhetorical runes recited
To a somber crowd


Parody of poem no#288 by Emily Dickinson

    Thank you so much. I love to write parodies. But, I haven't written any lately that I can think of. I'll have to try and correct that.

    Jon, well done, not sure what kind of paroody I am, I think a combo of serious and silly. Constance

    You aren't a parody my dear constance. You are the real thing. An original. A gem.

    Jon, I hadn't known #288 'til now, now I know, and so of course, do you no need for us to be nonplussed because some think a parody unjust Too leery to recite to somebody of amphibian with webbed feet yet parody, like puns is well placed unbogged on this web indiscreet good stuff... ;-)
