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.
