This is. Ode to Billy Joe.

And Papa said to Mama as he passed around the blackeyed peas
“Well, Billie Joe never had a lick of sense, pass the biscuits, please”
“There’s five more acres in the lower forty I’ve got to plow”
And Mama said it was shame about Billie Joe, anyhow
Seems like nothin’ ever comes to no good up on Choctaw Ridge
And now Billie Joe MacAllister’s jumped off the Tallahatchie Bridge.

It’s so brilliant, Bob Dylan wrote a parody that’s marked by or causing boisterous merriment or convulsive laughter. Err, I mean funny as hell. Sorry, couldn’t resist. Took that out of the dictionary. It was listed under hillarious. The article even mentions Des Moines, Iowa.
