I wandered lonely as I came out loud -by William Fartsworth

Hello there, people! I present to you- my first parody! This parody, as most of you might’ve guessed, is based on William Wordsworth’s ‘I wandered lonely as a cloud’ which some of you might’ve read in school. You can also read the original poem here- https://www.poetryfoundation.org/poems-and-poets/poems/detail/45521


I wandered lonely as I came out loud

And floated on high over coat-tails and frills,

When all at once my owner vowed

Never to let me out with such a sharp trill.

Beside his chair, beneath his knees

Fluttering and dancing in the breeze.

Continuous as the stars that shine

And twinkle on the milky way,

My smell stronger than turpentine

Making the other dinner guests pray.

A hundred saw I at a glance,

Tossing their nose rags in sprightly dance.

The stink beside them danced, but they

Tried to ignore the lingering odour in glee:

A fart could not but be gay,

In such a sizeable company:

I roamed—and drifted—but little thought

What annoyance, the event to my master had brought.

For oft, when on his couch he lies

After eating too much food,

Shame flashes upon that inward eye

For the wind which is considered rude;

And then his bottom with gas fills,

Whose stench is born to kill.
