The puppeteer falls

How does the common man end up
fighting for common air,
and grapple for basic necessities
provided by conscious comedians…(…)

Today, I’d like to challenge you to write a parody. Just find a poem – or a song – that has always annoyed you, and write an altered, silly version of it. Or, alternatively, find a poem with a very particular rhyme scheme or form, and use that scheme/form as the basis for a poem that mocks something else.

I Chose the alternative to mock the situation we find ourselves in. The poem I chose is the one used as an example that itself is a parody titled The Crocodile by Lewis Carol. So I parody a parody to parody this irony we’re living in if that makes sense.
