in which a former love of romeo’s is unsurprised it came to all that

His oaths were all crimson passion,
(Oh, fleeting, evanescent boy!)
But were simply passing fashion,
Discarded like some broken toy
To toss away as he saw fit
(Not employed for some higher good:
The fondling of some harlot’s tit,
The plucking of some maidenhood.)
Prolifigate in the bedroom
In constancy, he remained chaste
Cast in the role of a bridegroom
The play’s ending he brought in haste
(I say this without levity;
Forever is but brevity.)

(Duct-taped and chicken-wired together for This tip of the cap to Will “The Thrill” Shakespeare on his birthday

    I tried to comment on your OLM poem, which I very much enjoyed, but no comment box appeared beneath the post.
