Always liked this one. A bit of levity at Mr. Shakespeare's expense.
Dear Macbeth if you had known
Where greed and lust would lead,
Would you have hopped the first stage home,
Ere your better half would need
A lawyer and a good hand soap,
And, perhaps, a sleeping pill,
Or would you, as you did, you dope,
Allow the darling dear to kill
Old Duncan as he slept and snored
Serenely in your board and bed,
Unaware of your plans toward
His kingdom, crown, and royal head?
