I’m No Shakespeare

In the Uk as children we study Shakespeare. The books I had to read were The Chaucer Tales and Macbeth.

To be honest this poem I wrote filled with passion, a dramatic story which I will include as a part of the bonus podcast of The Power of Love this February.

Poem Drop by Drop by Parker the Poet in Kent

You cannot save a Soul who sold

His soul to desire of death by droplets,

Of laced red wine,

His fingers around the goblet,

Bewitched blinded by the screams of lust,

Dragged by the collar as he kneels

Before a temptress of deceitfulness,

Only waiting to take the throne,

As the delights are filled with rancid,

Worms to cook his belly,

Till it is full,

Till the night becomes day,

Till the heartbeat and time stop.

Stripped naked lying hopeless

As the shade of grey takes hold

Wake up Wake up Wakeup

Walk away from the chains,

That surround your throat,

Scream no more in the daylight

Wake-up was the the call

Deaf In a left ear as his head pounded

The pain of desire had take hold

Only visions of the maggots as they

Revelled in the rotting flesh,

Wake up wake up wake up

You silly fool,

Wake-up wake-up wake-up

Listen to the cackles, the deceit behind

Her snake like tongue

Or drink or drink some more

Till death comes knocking
