NaPoWriMo: Day 26 (Parody)


Poetry Prompt from NaPoWriMo:  Write a parody. Besides being fun, writing parodies can be a great way to hone your poetic skills – particularly your sense of rhyme and sound, as you try to mimic the form of an existing poem while changing the content.

Oh, Do a Parody

The parody
Should be easy
Something to make fun of

From lots to choose
How could I lose
Just change around the words

The Rime was way to long
Maybe do a nursery song 
I tried to write about the fog

Switched direction
Asked the question
Where does the sidewalk end

Tried some Poe
But do not know
Enough of this old master

I admit defeat
I can’t compete
With King Weird Al Yankovic 

I misread
I thought it said
Write an ode to a parody

Read it again on (yes, I do get paid/read): Day 26
