A Sonnet for George

Well, George asked for a sonnet, and I just happen to have one that I squirreled away. This guy was another poem I wrote for my English class, specifically for a "found poem" assignment we did for Hamlet. This one's for you bro:

The Readiness is All

With the vengeance set,
Blood’s release is called,
For a father’s honor,
The readiness is all.

A love forgotten,
A vengeance forestalled,
A madness awoken,
The readiness is all.

Death encroaches life,
Great men poised to fall,
The rapier and the knife,
The readiness is all.

Whether he now goes to Hell’s fires or Heaven’s halls,
This one thing he knows: The readiness is all.

Expect more poemishness/postingness later today.

Encore Encore. Like I said to George I think you should put up more of your poetry and sonnets. I think it would be wonderful. I enjoy reading them. God has definitely give you a talent in writing. I'm not just saying that because what you just wrote, but writings I have read in the past too.
