Topic(s) of this poem: hindi,pencil,play,translation
This is a really a funny poem featuring two characters of Shakespeare's play 'Hamlet' namely Prince Hamlet and Ophelia. The narrative has no connection with the play. Further, 'To Be, Or Not To Be' is the opening phrase of a soliloquy spoken by Hamlet in a scene of this play. Here, this has been used as an analogy of '2B' pencils having a soft and dark lead which is easy to use for doing a sketch.

Ha, ha, ha....... This is such a funny and an interesting poem. Shakespeare's characters of his play and a play itself- to be or not to be' so well co-ordinated and integrated here with the the light and dark pencils. Though it is titled a silly poem, i think it is brilliant........10
