GBE2 Week #51 prompt - Parody
I wasn't sure I was going to attempt this week's prompt. I've never written a parody before and wasn't sure it was something I wanted to tackle. Because of some computer problems last week I had missed that week's prompt and I didn't want to miss another; besides which, I don't like to be outdone. So this is my feeble attempt. I've enjoyed reading all the song parodies and other types that my fellow GBE cohorts have written but I decided to go a different route. My parody is a nursery rhyme so as you read the following, please think in your head the rhythm of Mary Had a Little Lamb, by Sarah Josepha Hale.
Mary had a rockin' band,
Its name was White Hot Snow.
But everywhere they tried to play
The answer was a no.
They set up at the school by chance.
That was against the rule.
It made the children sing and dance,
To hear a band at school.
And so the teacher bawled them out.
Yet still their song was heard.
The principal came quick, no doubt.
But never spoke a word.
What makes the kids love music so?
Was teacher's urgent cry.
Cause music soothes the soul, you know.
The principal did reply.
Until next time...that's my view.
