Pagemaster’s Challenge #11


"To be or Not to Be

that is the question is a statement that has intrigued me for years

and I wondered what could be done – or not


To Be or Not

Tis said that man can be, or not

And still not care a single jot

For woman standing by his side

Be she simple w***e or smiling bride

The question is, to be or not

The answer is, I know not wot.


Methinks a woman cares too much

And man cares more for drink and such

Other pleasures that may be found

Be they in soft beds or on the ground

If the question is, to be or not

The answer is, men care not, wot.


Nay, let this question not torment

To sear the mind and heart be rent

Asunder with tortured ebb and flow

Shouldst thou stay or shouldst thou go

The question is, to be or not

The answer is – don’t care a jot.


"To be or not to be" that is the question

the answer Dear Will, brings indigestion.

i like the wisdom of your words, the quick movement, and the sage advice
at the end. Very fine writing.

The only thing I don't like about this poem is that in some places it slips into the stereotypical. However, it made me laugh, and the rhyming is better than I could manage - good job.

I like the whole of it. It had me smiling throughout.
