if william shakespeare were to write a blog today
it would be written in the argot of the contemporary
blogger, it would be far removed from the sonnet
or the the argument of comedy or tragedy
the prose would be accessible and plain
flat as the champagne two days after the honeymoon
the accent might be transatlantic rather than warwick
shire, as for the very content, here it would not
depart from the norm, something about the everyday
kept short and trim, "went bowling last night"
watched football or american idol, however he might
venture to discuss the question of justice...
and if he did, then perhaps it would require more
than the inane.
