Happy birthday William

As a former English teacher, I've always liked the fact that I share the same birthday as William Shakespeare—April 23rd.

If I start to feel old today because it’s my birthday, I simply call to memory that it’s Shakespeare’s birthday today too.

He’s 455 today.

That makes me feel better... until I consider that Shakespeare is also dead.

Way dead.

Oh well. 

From this point on, I would like anyone who wishes me a Happy Birthday to do so in iambic pentameter.

Thank you. 

That is all.
