Romeo and Juliet
O Romeo and Juliet, wherefore art thou
So complex, yes, indeed I wonder how
In foolishness you had been caught in love,
'star-crossed' they say, fate of the stars above,
That led, (despair!) to your soliloquies
Those were filled with none but melancholies!
And here I am, O woe, O woeful day!
As I attempt whatever that thou say.
Obsessed with Rosaline, oh moan thy plight
With lots of cheesy lines, (how boring, right?)
For it is not my business that you would
Be so quick to change your love and your mood
Upon Juliet thine eyes were laid, and there
Was lover's kiss, and talk of sin? Oh fair,
T'is not as bad as when you went ahead
To moan exile; attempt to lose your head.
And soft! I do not know why you would die
Because your love is but faked dead? Oh why
Did you be fool to drink a vial; poison,
And leave a knife for her, you flap-dragon!
And there went Juliet, stabbed herself. O child!
Had you not loved him things would be so mild.
And here is my dear own soliloquy,
Of how dumb, silly, lame is Romeo, he.
For never was there a story of more woe,
Then this of me and impetuous Romeo.
if you are one of those shakespeare fans (like me! I am in love with william shakespeare), and feel that this is an inappropriate way of treating his work, I think so too! I was mostly thinking of helping those people who just cannot stand shakespeare (this would make them laugh). I absolutely love shakespeare and I want all of you to know that Romeo and Juliet is more than what is written here. Although Romeo is an irritating character, I learnt to love him. Those who haven't read this love story unabridged, I suggest you try. It is a wonderful romance! Hope this poem made you laugh! You'll probably laugh more if you read the play already :)
