Overview

This book of funny and clever parodies will have you laughing, smiling, and nodding your head. It pokes fun at Whitman with "I Sing the Body Bubonic," at Poe with "The Raving," at Dante with "Declined Comedy," at Coleridge with "Rime of the Ancient Maintenance Man,"—and at Emily Dickinson, Shelley, Frost, Donne, Wordsworth, e.e. cummings, Robert Service, and Blake.

Here's the beginning of "The Androyd" (after Blake);

The Androyd

Androyd, Androyd, lasered bright

Through the vacuum of the night,

What impossible pedigree

Could ruin your immortality?

From what distant ooze or thighs

Burned the fire from your eyes?

With what neuron did it conspire

To crush you with celestial fire?

And what sympathy and which art

Could slay you for your lack of heart?

Then as your parts dispersed in space

Did a smile stretch on its face?

. . . .

Other comic verse breaks between the parodies such as "Starbucks":

Starbucks

Caffeine

line up

shuffle lean

order cup

hissing machine

debit habit

inside slurp

bolt like rabbit

outside burp.
