Parodies

Written by: ilene bauer

To affirm a show has made it,
More than ticket sales, the proof
Can be found if it is parodied
And pops up in a spoof.

For it’s fun to poke some fun at
Those performances so big
All the audience will recognize
The actor and the gig.

It’s the price of fame and fortune,
For success bestows the right
To exaggerate one’s attributes
And take a mocking bite.

While the viewers grin, the targets
Of the spoof have the last laugh,
For the public still will clamber
To receive their autograph.
