The Lyrics

After reading Merry and Pippin's wonderful 'Letter B', I couldn't resist this. Sibilance refers to the sound of repeated S's, such as in the phrase "such as in the sound of silence" :)
Shallow shark nests, shy old men
As some to stalk Sith, shoo and send
She caused incision softly seeping
Sift a seed silo, shore's sweeping
And decision sat supplanted; sin and shame
Still insane
This is the sound of sib'lance

In zestless streams I soaked a stone
Sparrows sweetly sobbing shown
See they stay though a stray sheep stamps
I spurned a scholar to a scolding scamp
Send the spies, they're scabbed with the slash of a Caesar's spite
That spits and slights
As such the sound of sib'lance

And his forsaken sight is sore
Ten sows on steeple chases score
See Paul sulking, his spout seeking
Sleep all seers and then shout this thing
Sweep all citing Spong that soy is never shared
Show one snared
Sisters the sound of sib'lance

Schools said spy slew stooping schmo
Sign lets Spike say Stan sells snow
Sneer absurdly, I beseech Sue
Shake the smarmy and spiteful Stu
Shut superbly, spryly Spain fops swell
Sickoes on the shelves of sib'lance

Stand, the sheep all showered and spayed
So the ceiling spud is sprayed
Sandy spine slays, the slurs of the sophistry's
Spitting on the subway stalls
In Senegal shawls
Sweet Indigo's 'Sound of Sib'lance'
I also couldn't resist being self-referential :) My website.

Well-paced and rhymed, good plays on the original lyrics--but it would have been funnier if you'd tried to tell a coherent story at the same time you repeated the sound. 5-4-5.

Excellent parody, 5-5-5, but my comment here will not contain even one occurrence of the letter that you brilliantly employed in your parody.

The author of the parody has authorized comments, and wants YOUR feedback.
