I woke up this morning with the tune of "Take Me Out to the Ballgame" prancing through my head. I knew immediately that today would be the day that I would write a parody. A parody, as defined by Paul B. Janecko in his book "How to Write Poetry, is an exaggerated, usually humorous imitation. You have probably heard many parodies before. It's the kind of poem/song where someone takes an original song and rewrites the words. Weird Al Yankovic is an artist who has made a living by doing parodies of popular songs and their music videos.here. If you enjoy parody, you won't be disappointed.
Today, I am heading back to school after a week-long vacation. If you are too, you might enjoy my parody today!

I'm not ready to go back
I need just one more day.
I loved my time on va-ca-a-tion
Going back now would just be a sin
Don't forget your new
pencils. Please make them
For it's E L A
Back to school for you!
Now that I have that tune running through YOUR head, go try to write a parody of your own. Have a great day back to school!
