Shakespeare Used Weed - Poem by Douglas Scotney

For 'to cast a spell',
he used 'take';
and for 'sentence',
to avoid wrong take, said 'censure'.

He said 'level' for 'to aim',
and, on another level,
used weed for fashion
and for a sign of dementia.

    He said 'level' for 'to aim',
    and, on another level,
    used weed for fashion
    and for a sign of dementia.... insightful theme. It is a beautiful poem. Thanks for sharing.
