Sonnet Review #4

At this point in time we must take a reading break

And take a look at a stage production of King Lear

Sir Ian McKellen is amazing!

He can go crazy, while making a sneer.

This play shows folly of man and also their greed.

Greed for others love or material things.

This all becomes their downfall; they won’t breed,

All of this murder for what? To become King?

In most of Shakespeare’s plays, the fool is wiser

Seeing error and lies behind one’s mask

Except Cordelia, Lear’s own daughter,

The fool gave good advice, no need to ask.

Appearance misled those with eyes,

Which is why the blind is always quite wise.
