Loving you is my favorite thing to do

An inverse Poem : Warfare or Fairytale

“To be, or not to be?”

that is the question,

a fairytale

is not

working overtime,

in order to acquire it, which is

simply a bliss!

my favorite thing to do,


loving you




Authors note:

This is an entry to the inverse poetry challenge and my tribute to the Mastermind of poetry, William Shakespeare.

“To be or not be” a line inspired by the Great Hamlet and love tale of Romeo and Juliet. Love between the two was so fierce it resulted in bloodshed. I propose the question in a poem that is read both ways, from top to bottom and bottom to top. A fairytale, or battlefield? How far are you willing to go? The outcome that lies here, is it worth it,

To be or not to be?

    I like how you have alluded to two of his most famous works, and yourself created a poem that changes depending on how you read it! “A fairytale is not working overtime” can itself read two different ways, and it’s the line that stuck out to me. Well done😊

  • Oh this worked so well read bottom to top! You nailed it!

  • Nicely done, Natasha. I had to read it twice both ways to take in the full import. Always the sign of a good poem in my estimation.

    t'would be great to not have to work overtime to keep the love flame burning. If only that were not a fantasy for most of us.
