Shaking Up Shakespeare.

Unpublished Works, © 1979, BillyPauleyJr.*

Shaking Up Shakespeare.

To be or not to be, that is the question,
A Shakespearean soliloquy for Hamlet’s suggestion,
Romeo’s rose by another name would probably wilt,
And did Juliet die the second time from guilt,
Friends, Romans, countrymen, Brutus bro’t Caesar’s end,
With an enemy like that, he was sure short on friends,
While Antony tried to get a grasp on himself,
Cleopatra went and made an asp of herself,
It would’ve been better if the witches had said less,
Then McDuff wouldn’t have left McBeth’s body headless,
Shylock was nothing more than a total menace,
That gave Antonio problems in the Merchant of Venice,
To Shakespeare his plays must’ve been quite something,
But I find them merely Much Ado About Nothing.
