A Glass Half Full of Stuff to Read

If you should hear

A little Shakespeare

Perched on your shoulder

And close to your ear

Tweeting Iambic

Pentameter

And you turn to see

A bird in a ruff

Wearing a doublet

Of feathers and fluff

Writing about dreams

And other such stuff

A play for a flock

Of flighty bards

To be performed

In your back yard

A play full of jesters

Kings, queens, and guards

Then don’t try to catch him

For the play’s the thing

Allow him to be

And not not to be

Because a caged bard won’t sing.
