No, there’s nothing inherently inappropriate with this type of poetry. Well, maybe there is, but not in the sort of way you’re thinking. At least, there doesn’t have to be. There could be, if you wanted there to be, is what I’m saying.
A burlesque poem is one that takes a comical look at something serious. Personally, I would categorize the poem, Mighty Casey as one such poem, because I think the thought of this big shot striking out is really funny, but there are some that would not agree, I’m sure. Possibly my favorite example would be the poem The Unicorns, by Shel Silverstein.
Take a shot at a burlesque poem this week. Then, feel free to post it in the comment section. Have a good weekend, everybody.
