Baubo, the female jester from mythology, is also a poetry goddess known as Iambe.  For comedic or poetic effect, you need a shift in tone. Both often use a repeated phrase to develop the timing and both will shift the rhythm for particular purpose.

I consider the title character, of my novel, a disciple of Baubo. I want to make an appendix, in her voice. It will be tough.
