Shakespeare on the Island
There was a population here,
Of assorted pioneer’s sons,
Quoting William Shakespeare with ease,
His sonnets, the prose, the puns…
Farmers, a sheriff, a crook, an airman,
A horse trader, a chief, and the preacher:
They had one common person they hated,
The one-room school house teacher.
Successful men in their later life,
Most were veterans of the war…
All included the now cherished teacher,
When recalling their tales of yore.
