The Lyrics

On the sea again
Another airliner went down again
Skies aren't friendly to carriers Malaysian
Remember, MH370 was a dead end

On the sea again
In the Java Sea they're all searchin'
Lookin' for objects in the water floatin'
A tragedy for all the next of kin

(At the airport watchin' CNN)

On the sea again
Boats of many nations gather like a big rally
Hope expectations
Praying outcome might be a different way,
All in vain (A320), for 8501

Another airliner went down again
Skies aren't that friendly to carriers Malaysian
Remember, MH370 was a dead end

well written

Sorry but this is in extreme bad taste. And yes I am a genuine military ID card carrying American Airman. Go look this up somewhere on the WWW. NOTAM. Apparently none were issued and thus a tragedy happens. This event should not be the subject of a parody on ChuckyG's site. Can only comment without voting. The delivery of this piece is crass and cold. You have achieved notoriety. Out.

So what you are saying in essence is that every other world tragedy is OK to parody except airline tragedies... ever heard of morbid humor, dark humor... read Mad Magazine? Ferguson, ISIS, ME war, etc... are not really funny either but multiple authors here use those topics as well as attack religions and carnivores! Lighten up...

There are certain topics that are not ripe for parody -- and I mean dark humor, not just a rhyming rehash of yesterday's news stories. When you write in a jocular vein about the Crucifixion, the Holocaust, 9/11, or Muhammad -- when that happens, I'll congratulate you for at least being courageous. But a sympathetic review of a plane crash risks nothing and offers nothing of the main goal of parody: entertainment.

Already have written parodies about the crucifixion as well as several on the Holocaust. I was the first to write on the Dark Knight Massacre, the Reno airshow disaster, the Joplin Tornado tragedy, Ebola, ISIS beheadings, MH370, etc... so where have you been???

The point is that your parodies are not dark humor. They are not written in a jocular vein. They are safe recaps and commentary. So it is inconsequential that the subject matter is dark and terrible. You write of these things at an emotional remove. Rage is best channeled as satire. It's difficult to do. See Jonathan Swift and Terry Southern.

Let's say it's the 18th Century and you wished to make an original, powerful statement about the needless poverty and starvation of the Irish. Something to stir the conscience. An Arndt of that time might write "Irish dying (starvation)/While England feasts (great nation)/Lips stained from grass (damnation)/No spuds, but eternal salvation." But how about a straight-faced, modest proposal to solve the problem? Like selling your babies as food to the well-off, with instructions for culinary preparation and a sober economic cost-benefit analysis for the Irish parents. In lampooning the academic utilitarian, you'd be striking a very entertaining blow for the humanitarian. Isn't that a function of parody -- not just word subbing, but feasible nonsense employed in the service of truth? But as I said, satire is difficult. Yet, there are some examples of it in AIR. Also, in a black, comic movie about an impending nuclear holocaust -- a movie you know -- comes the great quote, "There is no fighting in the War Room." But if not executed well, then as George S. Kaufman observed about satirical plays, "[It's] what closes on Saturday night."

SW, you are entitled to your opinions. My author page with commentary refutes your definition of what's dark and morbid humor. Many have found my topics and style shocking, disturbing, and even immoral. But a tue parodist should be able to write about anything no matter how sacred or taboo. I recognize no bounds. That's me.

The commentary on your author page refutes nothing. It's pure rubber stamp. Pay no attention. Your greatest immorality is being bland and boring and writing for a niche audience of weapons specialists, war historians, Third Reich fans, and religious fabulists. But listen to True American Airman and to me. There are thought and passion behind our comments. I, for one, am not putting boundaries on the selection of your subject matter. It's all about presentation. And talent. You take criticism very poorly.

Hey troll, try using your real name instead of pseudonyms next time. Judging by the comments page in chronological order working backwards, you are the same person that hit all three of my parodies this morning. Or are you that stupid? Your long winded rants also carry no merit, poor sport loser.Btw, I hit 2600 parodies today and you can't stand it. Now crawl back under your self righteous anonymity rock, petty commentator that you are. Rejoin the 500 club.

In medieval times troubadours carried the tales of wars and tragedies from place to place via song. Today, of course, we have the internet. But a song like "Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald" is in the classic tradition: it recounts a physical event, the sinking of a ship, but it also imagines the emotions of the captain and crew in their final moments and sympathizes with the families and friends of those who were lost. A series of grim, coincidental airline losses are not necessarily an inappropriate subject for a song, but it does come down to a matter of taste, intent, and how the subject is handled.
