This offering is not actually a parody. The lyrics were sent in by Marcus Bales. When questioned as to what song the lyrics might fit, he replied that it was a Sonnet, and wasn’t written as a parody. But I liked the poetry so I wrote music to serve as a vehicle to turn it into a song. Generally we only do parodies, since we are called Parody Project, but an exception can be made for no reason other than we feel like it. I should mention that after I messed with it, it was neither a parody nor a sonnet. Executive Producers for Parody Project Don Caron and Jerry Pender

LYRICS for NO SURPRISE
Written by Marcus Bales
So you don’t like forgiving student loans
Since you get nothing from it, yeah, but which
Of you expressed your sad, self-righteous moans
That you got zilch from tax cuts for the rich?
And if, on top of mean, you’re Christian, too,
Your whole religiosity begins
With Jesus paying off your sins for you
Which insults those
You passed the laws that broke the middle class
And let the selfish wealthy rape us all,
But only now you say it chaps your ass
To count the cost? You really have some gall.
Your churches say “Obey or go to Hell” —
It’s no surprise you vote that way, as well.
AND WE HAVE SOME FUN STUFF IN THE PARODY PROJECT STORE
It was a sonnet until I started messing with it.
You teach me a new word –
Zilch means “nothing” or “zero”.

Best one yet! And speaking as a died in the wool, born of the spirit disciple of Jesus Christ I love the line about “Christian religiosity” depending upon Jesus having paid for our sins. Well spoken! Well sung! Keep it coming, Mr. Caron!

Technically it’s not a parody, but the spirit is right in line with everything else you’ve posted. Technically it’s not a sonnet either. A sonnet has rules about number of lines, rhyme scheme, etc. I approve of it anyway. Keep it up Don.
