Hamlet’s Resume (a sonnet)

Friday, 22. July 2011


Shall I submit to thee my resume?
Thus my vast experience thou canst see:
‘Tho life’s a stage, and on the stage we play,
There be listed here no frivolity.

A noble prince of Denmark I hath been,
Hath taken arms against slings and arrows;
I doth grunt and sweat in weary life, when
I couldst sleep, perchance to dream, heaven knows.

All of this thou shalt find outlined hence, and
A cover letter of sufficient length;
Against all usurpers I shall stand,
As my princely vita giveth me strength.

What future to tell, mine resume can:
To be or not to be – an employed man.
