Shakespeare’s Strut (WWP)

Inspired by and written for Weekend Writing Prompt – Thank you, Sammi

Shakespeare’s Strut
Form: Free Verse

the rehearsals done
it is the opening night
for three nights only
dialogue learned
costumes fitted
and the prompter sat in his box
the stage is set
and the Danish prince is raring to go
whilst Ophelia has a case of the nerves
her dress is too tight
the old curtain is rising to the occasion
it has seen better days
it is time for the am-dram Thespians
to get out there
in the hope Hamlet remembers his soliloquy
‘to be or not to be’ and so it goes
with Master Shakespeare can strut his stuff

Word Count: 100
