Stretching a Point
by Michael Levy

He read Hamlet 100 times n’ more,
burnt into his mind the words ...
neither a lender nor borrower be,
accordingly, he acquires a job, as chief librarian,
all card holders soon learnt to steer clear,
as his eyes shoot fire and brimstone,
n’ mouth snarls
at anyone, who dare borrow
a book, on his shift.
