"Puerto Rico"

Parody Written by:

The Lyrics

The Commonwealth of Puerto Rico was heavily damaged by Hurricanes Irma and Maria. The already shaky electrical grid was knocked out and power is only slowly being restored. A lot of the people may be forced to relocate to the mainland.
Think I'm goin' move to Massachusetts
Things are getting rough, I must leave home
'cause the lights all went out in Puerto Rico
No telling when they'll ever turn them on

Couldn't flip the switch to watch the TV
Cannot do the things I need to do
When the lights all went out in Puerto Rico
It put to rest the life that I once knew

Start a brand-new life in Massachusetts
Unfamiliar places I will see
While the lights all go on in Massachusetts
In Puerto Rico is where I'd rather be

I will remember Puerto Rico

The OS was a downer and right for this parody. 5 for pertanant rather than funny

"Pertinent" might be a good substitute for the rating category of "Funny". As you noted, the original song is one of loss and nostalgia. I thought it was a good fit to the subject of my parody.
