I feel within me
A peace above all earthly dignities,
A still and quiet conscience.
—Henry VIII by William Shakespeare.
The Rattling Bone’s Literary Saturday prompt #12 is the above quote from Shakespeare. What lies below, well . . .

Ah, when men & women doth conspire,
Shakespeare’s words shall still inspire.
When poets write of love’s rebuke,
Shakespeare doth do so, to boot.
When lovers sigh of sad endings,
Shakespeare writes of love’s pending.
When philosophers ponder conscience
Shakespeare’s response doth be raucous!
For every grievance you doth got
Shakespeare has at least one plot.
Though answering the prompt in rhyme is big of me
I shall end thus leaving Shakespeare a scrap of dignity.
