Bob Colonna’s take on the Scottish Play

Macbeth, the bold Scottish barbarian,
Let drop the big sword he was carryin’.
He’d heard quite enough
When his rival, Macduff,
Announced that his birth was cesarean.

by Bob Colonna, composer of limericks extraordinaire!

    Well done, DK!
    You prompted me to recall a limerick of my own on the the subject:

    Tragic heroes
    Shakespeare’s men couldn’t cut it, I fear,
    Not Hamlet, Macbeth nor King Lear;
    Lady Mac was much steelier,
    Portia, Cordelia;
    The kings and the knights were small beer.
