Typical Day, the original parody!

Typical Day

You're in the room,
I look up and turn around.
I feel the gloom,
Your presence is bringing me down.

You're in a funk,
you just sit in your room and stare.
you're not in your bunk,
instead you're sitting in a chair.

You thought I was less than a friend,
I can see it in your face,
someone you could bend, and one
who wouldn't stand in your place.

It's a typical day!
This guy calls, you feel like
it's a typical day,
in a boring kind of way.

Now you're on the road,
threw you out for intimidation.
your mind's a flood,
you can't pick your destination.

You love this frown,
even if it's always aimed at you.
I say your lease is over
and then you know it's true.

It's a typical day.
In a very boring way,
it's a typical day.

Don't touch me!
Can't come within 100' of my place.
You can't reach me, because
I won the restraining order case.

See reporters talking to you,
See the courthouse right in front of you.
See the microphones breaking the crowd,
See the police pushing the press out.
See the sidewalk under your feet,
See the police treating you like meat.
See reporters scream and shout,
after the trial all the rumours came out.

It's a typical day.
In a very boring way,
It's a typical day.

Don't touch me!
can't come within 100' of my place.
Can't reach me because
I won the restraining order case.

what you don't have, you won't get it now,
what you don't know, you'll have to learn it somehow,
what you don't have, you won't get it now, won't get it now.

It's a typical day.


I had to do this for an english assignment. That's why I had to "make it a satire of modern life" with the whole stalker thing being typical. If you were my teacher what mark would you give me? (percent please)

I'd probably give ya a 100%, given that I can't see much room for improvement, and since this is your own original work--it deserves a high mark!

Thanks! My teacher didn't mark it because she "didn't want to tell anyone that there creative work was bad", but she told me that mine was very good

In these parts we refer to this phenomenon as the Double Post.. it happens to all of us, some more than others. But it is always out there, lurking, ready to strike. There is little we can do to protect ourself from it, just be sure to edit the duplicate posts immediately as these insidious dopplegangers are very agressive and will spread throughout the forum.
