The Lyrics

Writing rhymes at times I find sick
I’m primed to do,
mostly engrossed at amusing
a skewed-tune crew. . .
amiright site,
a fine wrong-write kind. . .
men, women meant for me.
Mine’s inside.

Parody panoply
I’ve read up from bed, yucks shed,
It’s clear: no fear to jeer or sneer
at The Dead
and more; to gore, score
their rhymes at times.

Mate, abate not your fate. . .demonstrate to you:
mine’s inside rhyme,
Hesitate?! I won’t wait—your fate, mate, straight to. . .
mine inside rhyme

Abate, mate? Not your fate. Unfortunate you:
mine’s inside rhyme.
Perpetrate on you, mate. . .may irritate, too. . .
grind inside rhyme.

Hey, pictures, some say, may in ways spark
more worth than, say,
IK words. “No way!”
Bray I. “Nay!” Stray into the fray.
I’d ride with side strides ’gainst this tide. . .
I’m prints, slides disinclined.

So—logos, yo!*
for rhyme-inclined.
I’m rhyme kind of mind.

I can grate on nerves, mate, ingratiate, too—
mine’s inside rhyme.
Orchestrate not real great take-offs to fête you. . .
ply inside rhymes.

Remonstrate? Wait, don’t, mate. A fait à’ ’waits you—
mine’s inside rhyme.
So my fate: masturbate with lex traits; I do
mine inside rhyme.

*1580s, Logos, "the divine Word, second person of the Christian Trinity," from Gk. logos "word, speech, discourse," also "reason," from PIE root *leg- "to collect" (with derivatives meaning "to speak," on notion of "to pick out words;" see lecture); used by Neo-Platonists in various metaphysical and theological senses and picked up by N.T. writers. Other English formations from logos include logolatry "worship of words, unreasonable regard for words or verbal truth" (1810 in Coleridge); logomania (1870); logophobia (1923).

To paraphrase Simon and Garfunkle, you're a "parsing sage most merry with rhyme".
