"But soft!" he cries,
beneath my terrace.
Neath' the bright luminous face
of our silver lady, the moon
and the rose's sweet scent
fills the air.
float, i do, to my balcony,
in my gauzy gown,
throw my boot at him,
and yell,
"Shut Up You Moron!
It's Four FREAKIN' AM In The Morning!"

Our class was reading Romeo and Juliet, and i was thinking about how much I love to sleep, and I knew that I would be inside snoring away, none of that "Oh Romeo" crap.

To tell one's name; the livelong June-- To an admiring bog"

At the beginning I was so into the seriousness, but the end... oh my goodness, that made me laugh out loud. It was a big shock to me, as a reader, just because it was so serious and quoting Shakespear, and then it's like you crack this huge joke... I think you accomplished what you were going for, good job and keep writing :)
