Wesli Court



Six Shakespearean Tailgaters



Oh coward conscience, now dost thou afflict me!
I must besot myself now thou hast prickt me.

The Game

Why, then tonight let us assay our plot
And ante up to make a decent pot.


Yond Cassius has a lean and hungry look
As he devours the recipes in that book.

A Modern Brew

Eye of newt, and toe of frog,
A can of Campbell’s cream of dog!

Canadian Success

I am constant as the northern star
Who went to Hollywood and runs a bar.

Night Out

Let every eye negotiate for itself —
They’ve double-crossed a dwarf and a drunken elf.
