The Blasted Homey-o

On the streets of Verona we once met
I must admit I was taken aback
Such a fine catch for my lonely old net
As you saw, for love I had no true knack.

Have we yet to meet this hour Romeo?
I would do anything for you my love
O Romeo, thou arst my homey-o
Yet for all else, would I lend you my glove?

No, I care not for your disease sickened
That is, of rubbish are you Montagues
For your blood is a vile most thickened
Which I shall splatter in every hue!

Be gone now traitorous Romeo
As I renounce of you, my homey-o

This is a sonnet I wrote after becoming inspired by Romeo and Juliet. It's a bit lame, but I thought you guys would appreciate the humor.


Hi Connor! I love that you

Hi Connor! I love that you took the time to embrace such a classic form of writing, that is incrdibly underrated this day in age. In Shakespere's sonnets there were typically three overriding themes; (1) the brevity of life, (2) the transience of beauty, and (3) the trappings of desire. However, the theme of love conquers all of the above. Studying his sonnets has always given me a deep appreciation for the art of writing, and I am sure you admire his work just as much! Here is a link to some of Shakespeare's most beloved sonnets, I hope you enjoy!
