By Lucien Young

A Shakespearean take on such topics as Kim Kardashian, Tinder and Pikachu.

Dear legends, whose extreme munificence

And fine discernment know no earthly measure,

Today my gratitude is most intense,

For this PM, I had the untold pleasure

To pop into Unbound, the publisher

Of #Sonnets — wondrous tome, though small —

And sign some copies, making doubly sure

My name was legible, and not some scrawl

As might abash a schoolboy; aye, I’ve striven

To make it good, and with amusements rife,

And thus repay the gift you all have given

By helping bring such foolishness to life.

I hope the daft thing will your interest pique

When you receive it at some point next week.

Yours ever,
