HE WISHED HE COULD HAVE DONE THAT!

by Anton Wills-Eve


 what I cannot do.

HE WISHED HE COULD HAVE DONE THAT!

Jealousy is a green eyed monster, so Shakespeare tells us in Othello.

The Moor of Venice too, was an all round clever and successful fellow.

Master of all he fought and all he imperiously ruled

But alas by a servant and through jealousy was he fooled.

He would not believe that Desdemona was faithful all her life,

Ans so he choked her with a hankey, what a way to waste a wife!

Then Iago laughed behind his back having punished the pure lady he desired

But she had left an encoded message for Othello who now knew who had admired

The wife he always and only loved, indeed until death did them part.

So he sought out Iago and in turn avenged himself for misplacing his own heart.

Oh, William, your whole tragedy is encompassed in my short passionate lines.

Your jealousy must crave such succulent brief literary phrases when it dines.

AWE
