Verse and worse

Because her brain was affected (by weevil)
Lady Macbeth never thought she was evil
She thought it her duty, as a nobleman's wife
To know how to use a sharp stabbing knife

OUCH!!!!! Perhaps the Lady was merely handy in the kitchen with her chopping duties......

The weevil diagnosis is probably true
Of many a person known not just by you.

(In a hurry today! As usual, the poem cracked me up! Its the first thing I look at when I get up)

But Lady Macbeth got in a huff
She wanted her hubby, a friend of MacDuff
To be a King as the witches said
But first a few people must be dead
So she got out her dagger and did her stuff.

Woman with a knife is someone to be kept in the sites.

Artist Unplugged - you're right, maybe there is a side to her that Shakespeare never told us about!

david mcmahon said...

Yes, Kay, and she must have had a very "sharp" sense of humour!

Maggie, I'm so honoured that Verse and Worse is your first port of call. Feeling the pressure - only kidding!

Sir Edward - what a fine piece of literary juggling. Saluting you ....

Brian, I completely understand that allergic reaction!
