Poetry Magnum Opus

A Bohemian Rhapsody (parody)

(with inspiration and borrowed elements from the great group "Queen")



Life may be a rhapsody

Dips into darkest tragedy

Ascends to upbeat melody

That’s life


Life may be a fandango

A sweetest slice of mango

Yet melodramatic as a tango

That’s life


Life can be bohemian

Plebeian or rich as a Queen’s

May be staid or in between

That’s life


Life may cast you Scaramouche

Be judged by all a useless douche

At least enjoy and be a louche

That's life


Life seen by Galileo in silhouetto

Brought stars closer to his eye so

Was by science thought magnifico

As only he could go figaro

That's life


Life can be gay

In every single sort of way

We all come as we will and may

That’s life


Life is a fantasy

An operatic panoply

Brought to you in bright 3-D

That’s life


Life really matters

Though every illusion shatters

As on the edge of Hell one teeters

That’s life


Mama maybe Mercury or Hell

At the tolling of the final knell

It's Bismillah's or Beelzebub’s bell to tell

Depends on how the wind blows at the end

Not even you who gifted life could make amends

That's my life
