AUG 20 (2021), singable satire: Perry Como sings "MEL AND HIS HERNIA"

BONUS POEM, joining the disparate topics of hernia and gender-neutral language 
(see below!) 


(to the tune of "Me and My Shadow")

Me with my hernia
Shuffling down the promenade
It's disconcerting;
Perhaps that's why for months I haven't played.

It's always in my pants --
Lopsided bulge.
But chicks who check
Don't want to indulge.

For me and my hernia
Time has come to part our ways.

Mel's Friend:
Mel and his hernia
Huffing down the avenue; ("Hey, Mel!")
Fellas discern 'cause
It's so displaced, it's not quite out of view.

"What sets things right? 
You're so uptight. 
NOT 'hysterectomy'."

"So, go have your surgery.
Soon, before that thing turns blue."
