Elizabeth Horrocks: Hal For Me!

What a tricky choice to make:
Which of Will’s characters to take
if into lockdown we must go!
I’d learn a lot from Prospero,
but he’s like Brutus, somewhat stern;
and since there would be time to burn,
I’d like a man with far more joy . . .
not Romeo – he’s just a boy!
Some of the women could be fun;
Rosalind to name but one,
or Portia, or her maid, Nerissa . . .
but on the whole, I think I’d miss a
man around. So, I’ll choose Hal:
great company, a good (ish) pal.
When channelling his kingly side,
He would protect me till we died.
And, in both ways he’s very fit.
And that is what’s decided it!
