Parody Written by:

The Lyrics

I, Hemingway the great? I ain’t,
Hemingway the great, I ain’t, I ain’t.
I jot many very drivelish bores—
Sometimes scary, most engender snores.
Not any one is a Hemingway.
The images are silly that I paint. . .
Synesthetic taint, well, anyway,
Hemingway the great I ain’t.

Second verse ain’t like the first.

My hemming way is based on bastes,
Hemming way is based on bastes in haste.
I got married to a witch who excor-
iates should I mar my stitching chores—
The special one is the hemming way.
She says she will kill me if bastes I waste.
Baste-in-haste-but-show-taste hemming way.
“Hemming’s gay!” friends say. . .“pant’waist!”

H-E-M. . . ? No! Yea!
Hemingway, hemming way.
Hemingway the great I ain’t, I ain’t;
Hemming way is baste in haste.

Last weekend one of the news shows did a report on the annual Hemingway festival in Key West, where, it seems, a lot of corpulent gentlemen with white beards may be seen walking about town. I was working at a store the next day when a little boy walked by with his dad. He looked up at me and said "Papa"!. I thought maybe he had seen the Hemingway story. Then I looked at his dad and realised the poor fellow probably couldn't even spell the letter "H". I guess maybe I look like the kid's grandpa, but to paraphrase Michael Jackson, "that man is not my son".

Last week was the 50th Anniversary of Hemingway's suicide. Earlier this year was the 50th Birthday of his granddaughter, actress Mariel Hemingway -- who, by the way, still looks phenomenal. Let's just say that, had Amiright been around 10 years ago when she was starring in "Civil Wars," I would've written a few parodies about her.

Captain Jack de Barryl, Le Duc au Stroke On Wood, thank you, Sir, for writing about my favorite American author & a GreatLaker from Oak Park, Ill. ! " The Sun Also Rises " was the subject of my thesis, as well. Tally hoe, Sir !

Best of the day, JohnB. Though I would recommend you try to be be more like Hemingway. I'm sure you've heard of the importance of being Earnest....
...just thinking out Wilde, mind you.
