The Lyrics

"RH" is the Random House Unabridged Dictionary. Spielish: concocted word derived from "spiel," which comes from German "spielen," to play, as in, nominatively, "Wortspiel," wordplay.
Lex lites like myself sometimes have trouble
With their etymology.
Spielish word that whips 'em: "parody."
In my "RH" I've marked it;
Book is open, spanned in front of me--
The word definition: parody.

Parody, parody, parody, parody,
Here's a definition. . .parody:

"A burlesque imitation of a musical composition."
That is one of six; here's another definition:
"Any humorous, satirical, or burlesque imitation,
As of a person," or, makin' fun.

"Parody" has got three syllables; two I see
In "burlesque, "satire". . .dictionary:

"Composition that for sake of laughter vulgarizes lofty
Material or treats [such] with mock dignity."
That's "burlesque," and for it there are several synonyms I see--
Six such words are given; among them is "parody."

"Travesty" I, too, see; "satire" is greeting me;
"Farce," "lampoon," "caricature"--what this says to me:

Parody's meant to be levity, noses tweaked.
Seeking words of wisdom? Elsewhere seek.

Don't you wish more people would read parodies as simply that --- parodies --- and not as something heavy and serious? Well done, JB, 5s.
