Poetry: Shakespearean Sonnet

Shake­speare­an Sonnet
by R.S. Gwynn

     With a first line tak­en from the tv listings

A man is haunt­ed by his father’s ghost.
Boy meets girl while feud­ing fam­i­lies fight.
A Scot­tish king is mur­dered by his host.
Two cou­ples get lost on a sum­mer night.
A hunch­back mur­ders all who block his way.
A ruler’s rivals plot against his life.
A fat man and a prince make rebels pay.
A noble Moor has doubts about his wife.
An Eng­lish king decides to con­quer France.
A duke learns that his best friend is a she.
A for­est sets the scene for this romance.
An old man and his daugh­ters disagree.
A Roman leader makes a big mistake.
A sexy queen is bit­ten by a snake.
