One hundred words …

for Friday Fictioneers





’tis 458 twelvemonths since mine geniture, but still I’m a cool dude in the eyes of those that lendeth me their ears.

This day, mine Romeo wouldst weareth a baseball cap backeth to the front, his Juliet a frock of brazen brevity. Richard the third wouldst giveth his kingdom for a Ferrari. The Maggot-pie bird that did the noble Macbeth dread, becometh Twitter.

Letteth us fill our goblets to overflowing with juice of the vine and raise them high and doeth it again four centuries hence!

I’ll still be around strutting my stuff even though you won’t be buddy!

    I suppose Will’s works were rather shocking in his day, but wouldn’t he be shocked at today’s tales! And astounded at what the special effects people can do.

    Keith, I love where the image took you. Ol’ Bill will be around for a long time to come, I agree. I enjoyed your vernacular both in print and read.

    I’m thinking Romeo and Juliet, never read it, seen a few adaptations including Gnomeo and Juliet (which was poor) Yours was pitch perfect, nice job.

    Dear Keith,

    To think I nearly went with Shakespeare. Forsooth. I doff my chapeau to thee, my friend. Good job.

      I can no other answer make but thanks, and thanks, and ever thanks. From Twelfth Night by the way!

    And now the Bard teams with Lisa Fox to provide Keith’s unlimited imagination ammunition to amuse and entertain. Wonderful work, Keith.

    so many great little nuggets here, but my favourite was ‘frock of brazen brevity’. Well done 🙂

    I really enjoyed this. I love the images – you’ve summed up our age in a reversed baseball cap, a too-short dress, a Ferrari and Twitter. The wordplay is fun too.

    Perfect. The Bard would be proud of you. And now, please, make raps out of the sonnets. (And I wish there was a laughter icon instead of the ‘like’ star on your blog). BTW love the jubilee header.
