all the word play – d’Verse Poetics prompt

Romeo and Juliet have Love’s Labour’s Lost

A Midsummer Night’s Dream fails in The Taming of the Shrew

Twelfth Night of A Winter’s Tale freezes Othello

The Merchant of Venice lives in a Hamlet

Julius Caesar survives The Tempest

Macbeth is left with Cymbelline

but what, I ask ye

has Shakespeare got

to say for himself?

  5. Wow! That’s a good one, Barbara.

  6. Nicely done, but don’t you think his works reflect what he had to say for himself?

  7. Fun word play! 😊
