Shall we bake him a cake?
Shall we have a party?
Shall I compare him to a Bardthday Boy?
Shall we compose sonnets in praise of his words?
That’s not a ‘big number’ birthday, is it?
And died, he did, 401 years ago?
Perhaps we should have done something over the last year to commemorate that?
We await his 500th birthday?
I can’t wait.
I’ll bake a cake.
