Tragedy and Travesty
Tragedy and Travesty :
“Travesty" has farcical connotations; it’s actually related to “transvestite."
A disaster that could be described as a farce or a degraded imitation may be called a travesty:
“The trial—since the defense lawyer slept through most of it—was a travesty of justice."
A tragedy is an altogether more serious matter.
