Drear Spoof,

It has brevity on its side and creates a nice taut experience for the reader.

It makes you feel that you've read something strong and punchy.

Though the problem with it is that you'd need to show the whole song re-done as it were, rather than just the "hands" bit. And the "Sweet isolated Caroline" doesn't work. I know. I tried singing it.

Just once, mind.
