Shakespeare - Poem by Sathya Narayana

What not thee find in Shakespeare's plays; name thee
the hue, and got it sure! A breezy clown,
a weaver Nick, a gutsy Anthony,
the vile Macbeth who vies for Duncan's crown;
a ruthless Shylock, usurer, who asks
for flesh, a Moorish general, Othello,
a wicked Brutus, rebel Bolingbroke,
suspicious husband Ford; king Alonso,
a shattered father...characters those oh...
some kings, some servants, cobblers and Bavions:
the lovers Juliet and Romeo,
a shrew and Cleopatra, the ambitious Queen!

He wrote and acted too in dramas his.
Sometimes he watched his plays from audience! "
