A Tragedy by Shakespeare MAG

By Wendy Wanner, Columbus, MT

Life is a tragedy by Shakespeare,
the occasional laugh,
the occasional cry,
it is filled with villains and heroes and conflict on both sides
and in the end,
everyone dies.

this poem is certainly unique, and i love how it ends abruptly, almost with a shock because no one expects you to say "everyone dies." great job!
