He Doth Protest Too Much.. A Humorous Scribe..

You know how embarrassing it can be when you oversleep and miss a deadline, and the good natured teasing you may get due to it? I'm sure we have all been there one time or another..This happened to a dear friend of mine and this was my humorous Shakespearean poetic scribe to his poor red-faced excuses..

Me-thinks He Doth Protest Too Much ...


Me-thinks, he doth protest too much,
Whilst claiming of his innocence..
That he was really sleeping sound,
And dallied not with false intent..


He claims a late night lacking sleep,
'twas why this lad was still abed..
When near mid-day as Cock did crow,
he rose on up, this sleepyhead..

No Sinful Thoughts..

No sinful thoughts, he doth protest,
No hanky-panky crossed his mind..
Cruel age now robs thy vibrant vigour,
where once thou would have managed fine!


For sad indeed 'twas not the same,
this lusty lad could not deny,
that what he used to do all night,
has somehow swiftly passed him by..

Lingering in His Bed...

Alas, alack, oh what to do?
Thy poor accused, his face so red..
pleads that he was not at play,
though lingered longingly in his bed..


Could it be that tainted truth,
falls from his lips, from whence they touch..?
Oh laddie, tut! thy naughty boy..
I fear thou doth protest too much!

thou dwellest with in ma heart
like dwellest
twas yesterday
and thy love cometh
like a fountain burstin all the way...
twill be a living life when twill be a game of friendship ...
has't ever struck you
that we or twill be one poet... like none as tomorrow comes and
this day dieth
was that not anointed yet say

some shalt
some day
Shakespeare and Loverme lived like none else
on the ma earth
till dis day
