Sonnets are Neat

Comments (0) Writing, Poetry, Issue 5

by Gina Guerra

Some argue that sonnets are overdone
One such person would not, of course, be I
No: I believe that sonnets are quite fun
Now I, of course, acknowledge the supply
Exceeds the generational demand
That Shakespeare bloke wrote hundred fifty four
So many: far too many to withstand
And so to study them can be a bore
Read one or two and take a little break:
Engage with something other than his words
Now go back; soon you’ll realize your mistake
Eject the thought that sonnets are for nerds
And if still “sonnets suck” you wish to whine
Turn to the starting letter of each line
