Did Shakespeare Err

“All the world’s a stage, and all the men and women are players.
They have their entries and exits” famously said Shakespeare.

life’s timeline listed
in the various stages
of a mediocre existence

a simplistic description
by an extraordinary dramatist
of being during simpler times

he writes of societal norms
and average lives
like they were all just average people

those times seem uneventful
if he were alive today
what would he write now

  1. I think if he came back he’d first demand all the royalties due him which would of course turn him into an instant trionnaire! He’d buy Trump Tower rename it Shakespeare’s Place and proceed to write a history/tragedy “King Trump I.” 🙂

  2. An amazing observation and an interesting question! I would have loved to read Shakespeare’s works in modern times!
    I am sure the nitty-gritty of our lives after the pandemic would be on his priority list! 😛
