There once was a playwright named Will
Whose spelling was practically Nil.
Whether Shaksper or Shakspere
Or Shakspe or Shakespeare,
Sweet Will paid his bill with a Quill.
What rhymes with Yoknapatawpha?
So when Aeschylus guided his Pen
Or whatever they used way back Then,
All the choir was Aquiver
For the man could Deliver
Which who did which what which way When.
There once was a poet named Will
Who once stumbled on some daffodils,
As he later recalled
With emotion enthralled,
Now his words are worth more than a mil.
