Shake Spear - Poem by David Darbyshire

I want to be a farmer writing poems
In a barn amongst the chickens
As well as short stories and long novels
Like the main man Charles Dickens

I want to float on a raft going down river
Thinking about adventures is not the same
Don't want to go to school to be a lawyer
Better to have fun live the life of Mark Twain

I want to be in Africa deep inside the bush
Ride an Elephant Ostrich and a Zebra
Walk among the natives without fear
If there is trouble I will shake my spear

    David,
    you have two unfavorable comments below.
    Did you know that you can delete them? You can and should.
    I was drawn to this poem because of the title. I once had a poem called 'Shake that Spear! '. It was a parody of Shakespeare's sonnet 'Shall I Compare Thee to a Summer Day? ' which was chosen as poem of the day once. It hardly got any hits at all, but then I changed the title to 'Shall I Compare Thee to a Bale of Hay? ' and it became very popular for a while.
