Beware virgin bard-lovers
Gather ye Play-scripts while ye may,
Old Time is still a flying:
And this same Act which smiles today,
In a library will be lying.
The tedious National Curric-ul-um,
The higher it's a getting;
The sooner will its Race be run,
And neerer it's to SATting.
That Stage is best, which is the Third,
When Youth and Blood are flowers,
But being spent, GCSE, AS,
A2 will steal your hours.
Then be not coy, but use your time;
And while ye may, reed Shakespeare:
For having lost but once Year Nine,
Coursework will over-take, dear.
