Shakespeare Once Said

SHAKESPEARE ONCE SAID

 

Shakespeare once said:
The Prince of Darkness is a Gentleman
(But never a lunatic)
Or a spy

That night when
Shakespeare saw Marlowe
Only briefly
In the mirror
When words came to him
In the silence
Of the night air or
From a bottle
Or a muse

When dreamers, poets were
Murdered
Softly ever so softly
Without prayers
Merely
For convience

Under the shadow
Of the moon
Buried in books or
Buried in unmarked
Graves alone

But
Shakespeare never said
Anything about the dead

He only wrote about
All his ghosts second hand

Yes.

Shakespeare
Used to say alot
Of shit

Sometimes
Even twice
