Shakespeare and the monkeys
I am one of the million monkeys Hammering away at the keyboard, Trying to produce another Shakespeare. (I wonder how the monkeys did it The last time; with pen and ink pots, They must have made quite a mess! ) Tapping away feverishly About love, life and rage- I hope It will another Shakespeare make. (How did the monkeys of yore Know so much about mankind? I suspect the hand of a traitor! ) Do not belittle us monkeys on Twitter. Though we make no sense now, There are gems hidden in our chatter. (I know the recipe – mix Othello’s jealousy, Shylock’s greed and Romeo’s love, and add The super-confidence of the monkeys! ) We smart monkeys of today, shall not Create another Hamlet- we do not Know the meaning of indecision. (I do find the idea somewhat strange, When I come to think of it, That monkeys did not write about monkeys?) I know a lot about monkeys And I know a lot about men – Let’s see what this one turns out to be on. (Some people say Shakespeare was actually Sir Francis Bacon. I have a suspicion They now think that Bacon was a monkey! ) I wonder how many taps its shall take, How many centuries, before we hit upon “The world’s a stage….” once again. (Did the monkeys write the sonnets too? I wonder whether they could appreciate The beauty of love expressed therein?) One should ask the monkeys of today To keep tapping randomly. We cannot Produce another Shakespeare consciously. (I wonder how the monkeys Got the people to read their stuff? It is so difficult to get readers now-a-days! ) ***
I will let the blog speak for itself...or, at times, for me. View all posts by Abhishek
