1. A General Overview
Juliet and Romeo did kiss in
A glamorous gold ball room.
No eyes lingered upon, the radiant icon,
To them all was lost in a hazy gloom.
Romeo gave a soft innermost sigh,
Juliet was heard to moan.
And at that moment fate gave a sad cry,
For the lovers were lost on their own,
For the lovers were lost on their own.
Their fathers Capulet and Montague
Wouldst not this union celebrate,
For if either had heard, even the slightest word,
They both would be quite irate.
War between the clans was at it’s upmost peak-
Still the hot young love ran torrid.
Despite harsh warnings, the lovers did sneak,
And the next day they were married,
And the next day they were married.
The relationship, as was expected,
Was not lacking in drama.
Two counts of murder, and an exile order,
Didst not improve the ‘karma’.
Then Juliet was to be married (again!),
Romeo was forced to take flight.
Suicide thoughts by the tragedienne
Stopped with a brew drunk in the night,
Stopped with a brew drunk in the night.
Alas, as fate knew, death awaited the pair,
Her sorrowful cries were in vain.
The drugs were snappy, the dagger was happy,
And all resulted in pain.
But not all was lost on this unhappy site,
For the two great lords shared eyes-
The time was ripe for a long respite
From the warring, the greed and the lies,
From the warring, the greed and the lies.
