De Jour of the Week (11/8/10)

Shakespeare Was Onto Something …

 

Yes, a rose by any other name

Is still a rose, but it’s my aim

To describe other things about a rose

With this simple-minded prose

 

A rose

By any other name

Is still just a rose

Unless you’re allergic

 

A nose

By any other name

Is still just a nose

Unless it’s nosy

 

Clothes

By any other name

Are still just clothes

Unless they’re one-size fits all for everyone but you

 

Knows

By any other name

Is still just knows

Unless it’s something she knows but you don’t

 

Flows

By any other name

Is still just flows

Unles you’ve just finished your fourth beer only to find the bathroom is out of order

 

A dose

By any other name

Is still just a dose

Unless it’s an epidural
