The Lyrics

He was duty-bound to be regime's scourge.
Marquis De….
He was duty-bound by writing to do a demon purge,
Marquis De….
Marquis De…,
there once was a man named Marquis De…
In time his name became
an eponym for lechery
Marquis De…;
they put him in prison: Bastille, the.
That couldn’t keep him down;
his novels got around slyly.
Marquis De…,
he was proud of the role he's playing
as he scoffed at the hypocrites praying.
Marquis De…,
he had many playthings, Marquis De….
He was duty-bound bad habits to urge,
Marquis De….

A very good parody you wrote about one of the notorious SMFs of all time. Sadism certainly existed before him and it's so rampant now but you did an excellent job detailing one of the sickest creeps in your lyrical rewrite. Salut!

To Groan Jett - if that's your bag so be it. Melania Trump posed for that crap. That ain't my scene, baby. And the Marquis de Sade was an absolute SMF. Ever read his books? Awful.

Not my bag at all; just an idea for a parody. It's called dark humor
