The Lyrics

corrida: running of the bulls
cuernos’: horns’
puntos: points
pinchan: puncture
copa: glass
fundador: Spanish brandy
topo: taupe, color of brandy—sort of
sangre: blood
seca: dried
Gore is the gravest puncture I have known.
This is a puncture made not by a roan.
Gore is a ripping and a dermis fray—
I only wish I’d not been gored today.

Gored was I in Pamplo-na;
now my side has a hole.
This knife-like wound sure is piquing,
aching, leaking, hab’dash’ streaking.
Long the corrida, but wrong place, wrong time
was it for me; now I watch the gore rime.

I hope I will be shivved no more
as I’m harmed and pretty sore. . .
toros settling the score:
cuernos’ puntos pinchan. . .gore.

I’ll cope by swigging down a score
of copas of fundador. . .
topo complements color
of sangre seca outpour.

I like this Gore the best. The only one not covered is Lesley, who wasn't singing of politics when crying about her party.

Maybe I'll give her a shot, Brock.

Hey JB - you did it! Well crafted, liked the added Spanish - the fact that as I was reading I subconsciously pronounced 'color' like 'ca LORE' says right there that you did a good job!

5s again on both parodies JAB. Nice, but you left out Picador, Stevedores, and 'traje de luces,' or suit of lights. Saw several corridas and even female Matador Cristina Sanchez while she lasted. The bull never sees red a t all b/c it is color-blind. It reacts to provocation.
