Twix star-crossed lovers

Today's creative writing session was centred around Shakespeare's Midsummer Night's Dream. During our break we munched on half a Twix each and decided to dig deep and release our inner bards. The resulting poem is definitely a work in progress - it was a tricky task after all! 

If you would like to contribute a line please do, just comment, tweet, or message us on Facebook.

The difference twix day and night;
one is dark the other bright,

like the enduring love twix Helena and Demetrius
cunningly coerced by her Father, Egeus,

or Queen Titania in slumber on grass
awakening to feel love twix her and an acting ass,

whilst the four star crossed lovers stumbled twix fog and mist
Yearning for the course of true love to end in a kiss,

latterly the forest fairies pranced and sang their song
as Puck tried to undo his confusion twix right and wrong.

If you fail to understand our poetic theme,
take heed, it's based on Midsummer Night's Dream.

  1. Your challenge for next week, find as many biscuit references if Shakespeare as you can. Try this for starters:

    Come, thou shalt go home, and
    we’ll have flesh for holidays, fish for
    fasting-days, and moreo’er puddings and flap-jacks,
    and thou shalt be welcome.


Please tell us what you think about our poems and the biscuits
