The Lyrics

On reading too many postings...........
I read postings,
Royal roastings,
And so many on the same base song,
Cunning toastings,
And I'm tempted to spoof along.

West Side Story -
So ear-wormy!
Lennie's melodies swarm in one's head ;
John BRAinstoRmY * -
He'll keep satirizing 'til he's dead.

See that list of spoofs after searching there.
Who's that prodigious JB?
Pacing's sure to please,
Rhymes that exceed these,
Subjects sometimes sleaze,
Hyper-parodies !!!!

Do our habits not seem hebephrenic?
I refer you to my precious wife.
She'll inform you the minute you ask her:
She'll advise us to consider getting a life.

I'll confess it;
You might guess it -
Novice, "Giorgio"'s a name I've assumed,
And "Coniglio" -
He's my nominee for nom-de-plume.

I feel witless,
Feeble, shiftless,
Facing wit-lords, as one of life's twits;
Which is odd,
With my surname ending in "..witz"

* Sorry, the spelling wouldn't work quite right. Please regard this as an anagram.

Don Giorgio - It is true that you are new, but you're certainly not a novice. As for not being JAB (in both output and score), who of us here is? Your parodies are always of a high quality...and delightful. ;D

As OMR; clever wordplay worthy of our illustrious JB. At this rate, you'll be deserving of a homage yourself.
