"Once something has been said, it cannot be said in other words." -Aristotle

Born in Stratford was he,
Over in the country of France.
He wrote "To be or not to be",
Wrote Hamlet in a quick glance.

William Shakespeare was great,
Wrote over 100 sonets and plays.
Such a rich employing fate,
Got praised manyfold in those days.

Funny was The Taming of the Shrew,
Kate and Petruchio were cute,
Before Bianca's sister flew,
Hortensio wore his lovely lute.

There was A Midsummer Night's Dream,
With fairies all about.
Pyramus and Thisbe, a play it would seem,
Featuring among players, one snout.

All these plays and more divine,
Still used this very day.
They all were more than fine,
So use any Shakespearean play.

The author's comments:
I felt I had to write something about William when I was in a very fun class called Shakespeare Comic Wit where we read his comedies and talked about all his plays and played games pertaining to him.
