Anything from Zaranka's The Brand-X Anthology of Poetry might work for teaching parody.

I suppose we all have a few of these:

Whenas in style my Julia dines
She says ĎMy perfect valentineís
The one who buys me fancy wines,

The kind that make a girl go ape
And pray to God she wonít escape
The liquefaction of the grape.í

And so, to have a bon, bon soir
And end up in my loveís boudoir,
I buy her pricey pinot noir.


Whenas in dreams my Julia takes
My hand, my heart no longer breaks,
And though Iím sleeping there awakes

In me a sense that so-called dreams
Are more than merely that which seems
But that which is. The rest are schemes,

A bunch of lies that Iíve been fed.
But when I wake alone in bed
I lie there stunned Iíve been misled.
