Banquo - Poem by Pratheek Praveen Kumar in Calm Reflections

A conscientious friend,
Who to the witches did not bend,
And kept his mind,
Which we in Macbeth do not find.

He wisely decided to do nothing,
Even though it was told that his sons would be kings,
And thus was opposed to Macbeth,
Who in his desire was set.

He did his best to dissuade friend,
But to his objective he could not Macbeth bend,
And so, he was suspicious of him,
He was however a little dim.

And so he was by Macbeth killed,
As he was with suspicion killed,
He remained loyal to the end,
And died denouncing his old friend.

A more loyal man Duncan did not have,
However, he was not able to save,
Duncan from his death,
And so he was on revenging Macbeth set.
