O sir, there is something I must tell you
A play unfolds within this dwelling
A comedy of sorts with a villain
This villain you see is here amongst us
Stealth in manner and makes no apologies
A woman to him is just a toy
Solicitous in his missives just a ploy
A gentleman in most people’s eyes
In a woman’s eye he may be a prize
A husband instead may be surprised
When before him stands a web of lies

Your blank verse has some integrity
A form most pleasant to society
The topic you broach in sincerity
Can only be taken as vulgarity
On this same day we are betrothed
A duplicitous occasion we both know this
To say it other is to dismiss
The allegiance she swore when she gave me a kiss
I too am mannered in forms of speech
Sonnets, couplets and sophist reasoning
Elegiac distichs with lots of seasoning
If she be untrue as you inform me
Then like Othello to Desdemona
She will be marked for tragedy
And this will conclude this doomed pageantry
