It was He who did it all;
While I was asleep in my hall!
He slowly walked past my couch
And took my scripts;Ouch! Ouch!
I wrote them all, yes! tragedies and more
I named them all; those Heroes of Rome.
And when my last play was done
I thought the battle I just won!
He came along through the door
He took my plays and made them his own!
He put his name, where mine belonged
Now Shakespeare's famous and I am not!
