       Classic humorous and funny poems using parody - an imitation of a writer, artist, or genre, with exaggeration for comic effect.


O nymph with the nicest of noses;
    And finest and fairest of forms;
Lips ruddy and ripe as the roses
    That sway and that surge in the storms;
O buoyant and blooming Bacchante,
    Of fairer than feminine face,
Rush, raging as demon of Dante--
    To this, my embrace!

The foam and the fangs and the flowers,
    The raving and ravenous rage
Of a poet as pinion'd in powers
    As a condor confined in a cage!
My heart in a haystack I've hidden,
    As loving and longing I lie,
Kiss open thine eyelids unbidden--
    I gaze and I die!

I've wander'd the wild waste of slaughter,
    I've sniffed up the sepulchre's scent,
I've doated on devilry's daughter,
    And murmur'd much more than I meant;
I've paused at Penelope's portal,
    So strange are the sights that I've seen,
And mighty's the mind of the mortal
    Who knows what I mean.

                                        Walter Parke.
