Pascal Gunsch

Make your own sonnet

Writing this sonnet is too difficult:
using quatrains, metre and rhyme schemes.
Everyone knows it’s Shakespeare’s fault
he choose to use those terrible themes.

Romance, kisses, love and affection,
marriage, divorce, revenge and hate,
tangled up with some self-reflection,
always combined with a twist of fate.

Not to speak of how he brutally stole
and changed stories as if they’re his own:
Romeo and Juliet in total,
though not by him, for which he is well-known.

The man of the sonnets and stolen play
made up ten percent of English today.
