The Lyrics

Your gut gets queasy, I seem so strange
When I try prescribing you pills
But I still seek your vote after all that I've punned

Will you indulge me?
Or do you still see me a clown you have booed?
Albeit I kissed up for the fives
Those four scores and threebies wont do

I try to make you gladden, I seem deranged
Couldn't give all my spoofs mass appeal
Farting out the doorways, gassing out with my buns

So I chose nonsense
Poking around trying anything lewd
I say things outrageous as I maul
I may have intended it to


Can't vote for me absentina
The truth is I never booed you
Despite your child play
Your mad irrev'rence
I kept things honest
It's been my pref'rence

And as for culture, and as for change
I'm seeing imposing is in
Though it seems in my world that it's still not polite

There are perversions
They are not the diversions I hoped them to be
My laughter is shared all the time
I'll spoof you and watch you'll spoof me

Can't vote for me absentina


Should I spill my guts?
There's nothing more I can think of to offer you.
So all you have to do is vote for me to show
This parody is skewed

Lionel, did you mean "Absentia" here? I didn't vote yet since I couldn't tell if you used "Absentina" intentionally here or not. I'm seeing a deeper point to your piece - maybe. Anyway...It's early here on the West Coast and I will try to stop back by later to check this out a little more...thought-provoking, for sure...

Thanks Paul, I guess it is Abentia. I didn't research the word. But this parody was for the lurkers out there who just view parodies and don't vote. They're absentia as far as the author is concerned.

Aha! Well, that clarifies things a bit for me...I'm only partially familiar with the OS here, but I'll trust 2Eagle on pace and go with 5's across the line ~ ~ ~
