In the Way of Shakespeare

Poem: With this poem I challenged myself in guile to his way. In his honor.

In the Way of Shakespeare

What weakness is there,

Such of flesh and man,

Binding both mind and meat,

To drag senses mad.

To drive sad a heart,

And leave regret as repose.

Of truth, the world lays bare,

Many a perfect feast,

To serve in plenitude of needs.

So what is left to man but to feed.

At everything at hands as can reach.

And thus a weakness seats,

Born of opulence and saturation.

Binding extremes of want and need,

Leaving an endless creed,

Devouring a spirit in plea,

To be free of such greed.

How does it work?
