Shakespeare's TragediesEdit

Did you ever hear the tragedy of Darth Shakespeare the Wise?

I thought not. It's not a story the Academie Francais would tell you. It's a Tudor legend. Darth Shakespeare was a Dark Lord of the Bard, so powerful and so wise he could use the Words to influence the morphemes to create... plays.

He had such a knowledge of the Bard that he could even keep the lines he cared about... from rhyming. The Dark Side of the Bard is a pathway to many abilities some consider to be unnatural.

He became so powerful, the only thing he was afraid of was losing his rhymes, which eventually, of course, he did. Unfortunately, he taught his audience everything he knew, then his audience killed him in his sleep.

Ironic. He could save the English language from death, but not himself.
