Help with a Project on Parody and Poetry

i have a project due tomorrow and I do not know what do to. Please some one help me to get the answer.

find a poem that you would like to parody. Move line by line through the original. Submit your parody, with a statement at the bottom of your parody that indicates the point of your satire.


I Google and I found this is very intersting but I do not know how to make it parody

A parody only works if the original is recognizable.  In other words, taking a poem which no one knows and writing a parody is a fruitless pursuit.  Instead, pick something familiar, like the one you've noted or perhaps a nursery rhyme.  Jack and Jill may have gone up the hill to fetch just about anything!  One poem I like to parody is "Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening," by Robert Frost.  The first line reads:  "Whose woods these are, I think I know...."  Change "woods" to nearly anything else, and you've got a new story ready to write.  Good luck!

The poem that you found is a parody. It is a parody of the Christmas poem The 12 Days of Christmas. You could parody the original yourself if you wanted to write another version of this. Perhaps you could write a 12 Days of Christmas for Students? Keep the same structure and rhyme scheme as much as you can, but change the words to fit what you want them to say.
