My Attempt at a Parody

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.
