When I was a kid, I learned the following version of “Battle Hymn of the Republic.”
Mine eyes have seen the glory of the burning of the school.
We have tortured every teacher; we have broken every rule.
We have shot the principal, and then, we flushed him down the stool.
We go marching on!
Glory glory what’s it to ya?
Teacher hit me with a rulah.
Met her at the door with a loaded forty-four,
and she don’t teach no more.
In light of all the school shootings today, any little kid who sings that will no doubt be in big trouble. Now, here’s Kathy Waller with more song parodies. I hope this gives you a good laugh to start your week.

When Eve went to her high school senior prom, she wore a red dress that her mother had made for her. That night, after dancing with the boy of her dreams, she caught him in the act with her best friend. Months later, Eve, a freshman in college, is bullied into giving the dress to her roommate. After her mother finds out, their relationship is never the same again.
Twenty-five years later, Eve, a bestselling author, is happily married with three children. Although her mother suffers from dementia, she still remembers, and Eve still harbors the guilt for giving the dress away. When she receives a Facebook friend request from her old college roommate and an invitation to her twenty-five-year high school class reunion, then meets her former best friend by chance, she must confront the past in order to face the future.
