Use To It to HBO's New Sesame Street (parody) 

Life can be difficult can be but some things just get use to it 

Some things make changes as difficult as it may be 

Use To It (free form poem) 

Here grew a flower
In the bitter soil
Reaching for a sun
Which it rarely saw
And as its companions died
Its tears formed a rainbow
The life that it lived
It got use to it
Here flew a bird
In cloud covered skies
Winging its freedom
From the constant eyes of danger
Scraping out its food
In hopes to feed its family
Like so many others
Singing in the trees
The life that it lived
It got use to it
Here drew a man
In streets of confusion
Covered with the blood
Of another man’s life
While nobody cares
A mother cries from a window
As he makes up more reasons why
The life that it lived
It got use to it

(In this poem we progress from a plant to a human being. All dealing with a life it was dealt. It is interesting, how the poem takes on a darker nature as we become human. This poem also has qualities of the "repeating poem". Also, I snuck in a rhyme into the first lines, tying them all together. - When putting this poem together, I was taken back to my first apartment by myself. It was in San Francisco's Tenderloin, one of poorest areas of the city. I was working at the M & M (a restaurant) and going to school full time so it wasn't so bad, since I was rarely home. But Sunday evenings... After my day with Arlene was over, I had to bear the timelessness of this human abyss. It wasn't long before I met my neighbors and we got to know each other. Who were these people? Society's outcasts; prostitutes, strippers, thieves, drug dealers, people who life had turned its back on. It was 1969, and we all shared Sunday evening, when the world we were use to stopped. In that time, we stopped being students, prostitutes and thieves. We were just people. One of the things I took away from those "Sunday Evenings" is some people do not like change. No matter how harsh life gets for them. they struggle to hold on to what they have grown us to. I personally have been responsible for changes. Sometimes, in the quite of time, I feel a regret for the things that no longer are, because of those changes,)

To go with all of this, I've selected: Moby "Sleep Alone" 

Let's change up to something a bit more humorous 

The original name for Sesame Street was planned as 123 Avenue B, but it was changed due to the fact that it was a real New York City address. If you haven't heard, Sesame Street is moving to HBO. There are many speculations why this is happening. Jeffrey D. Dunn, CEO of Sesame Workshop said, “Our new partnership with HBO represents a true winning public-private partnership model. It provides Sesame Workshop with the critical funding it needs to be able to continue production of Sesame Street and secure its nonprofit mission of helping kids grow smarter, stronger and kinder.” Still, we long time Sesame Street fans are concerned. To elevate some of the concerns, Barely Productions has put together a light hearted parody of the New Sesame Street. 
Let's take a clue from the moment and enjoy. "HBO's New Sesame Street (parody)"
