Macbeth, A Tragic Hero - Poem by Pratheek Praveen Kumar in Calm Reflections

A person of boundless ambition,
From whom we should learn,
A person who was waylaid by witches,
For which he had to pay the consequences.

To kill Duncan was his dream,
However, unlikely did it seem,
That he would do this deed,
Until his wife put in him, this seed.

So he killed King Duncan,
When his attendants were drunken,
However, he no longer had any peace of mind,
As everywhere enemies he could find.

He searched the witches out for their prophecies,
Which were again filled with many lies,
However, he again believed them fully,
Too late did he the truth see.

In the end he was killed by Duncan's son,
And Macbeth's life was finished and done,
However, from his life we can learn a lot,
That Kingship cannot be simply bought.
