“Ding-dong! Shakespeare calling!”




Are you sure he will appear?

I’ve been to other poetry shindigs

where they promised you the big-wigs;

but, all we seem to get

are not the real McCoy.

And, yet, I keep on hoping

that one day the Bard will show –

Today? Tomorrow? Tomorrow?

and… tomorrow?

When will you know?

You sent an invite to his agent

and have never had reply;

that always seems to be the case

I really wonder why.

Okay, I shall live in hope

that one day soon

the Bard of Avon

will ring the bell

“Bard of Avon calling!”

And all will be well that endeth well.
