Parody Written by:

Guy DiRito

The Lyrics

The ending of this song is a bit rough. I must have rewritten the last stanza at least a dozen times and I had to violate rule # 18 of Guy DiRito's rule book of parody writing which basically says - A parody should stand on its own and shoud never need any comments to drive home a point. But I had to do it in the last stanza just so it would make sense. Please forgive me for this and just enjoy the parody. Thanks.
In the park this obscene mime,
Made gestures obscene and malign.
A cop I saw and he was peeping,
Arrested mime for his safe keeping,
With precision you could hear the cop refrain.
Rights remain,
"You have the right to silence".

In silent stream a fart is blown,
Now it wreaks the whole drop zone.
Vapors close on an oil lamp,
I turned to holler out before the ZAP.
Then the gas that did just ignite zapped my eyes,
It burned that bright.
It was the smell of silence,

And in a forest without saw,
Ten thousand poplars maybe more.
Wind was blowing the trees creaking,
No ones listening people missing.
Strong gust comes along and a mighty poplar tears,
Would sound it bears?
Or would it fall in silence?

Sat to dine and don't you know,
Phone starts ringing, no "Hello."
Who can it be now that tries reach through?
Caller ID will soon teach you.
And your words won't reach through old "Ma Bell."
Thank techno.
I can eat in silence.

(Our monk described below was only allowed to speak 2 words every 10 years)

Once was a man who loved to pray,
In a quiet monk house stayed.
Bed hard, food bad, and now quitting,
Thirty years 3 times speaking profited
It to you not the least at all.
I so clear recall,
'Cause you've been bitchin' since you got here!

The Mime-randa warning was ROFLMAO! ..,. perhaps mimes who are arrested should be advised of their right to speak? Great multiple twists on "silence". Can you hear these Fives?

z - when I get 1's I figure I got someone's attention either good or bad and that is fine with me since the comments mean far more to me than worthless votes.. I'm not saying I suspect you of the 1's votes nor do I care but it is your right to vote as you like or not to vote at all or comment either for that matter. Just like to let all who sees this that 1's mean zero to me. Don't ask me - ones being zeros,,, but it has something to do with the new math I suspect. Actually I got much better response than I thought I would on this. By far not one of my best writes. Thanks all. And what was that last comment? Did you type blehtt? Does that mean you stepped in something like "cowdump"? And what is "cowdump" Is that where they take sick and broken bovines? :) Thanks to all for reading my work.

I'm not sure what Polak's on about, but he's probably the guy who gave me 1's too. Anyway, good job, Guy.

Love your stuff Guy, but I just didn't get this one...a little too much poetic license. I'll just walk over to the other side of the room in silence...
