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

Dear fair youths and dark ladies,

Your boy’s cock-a-hoop to report that #Sonnets is now 90% funded, with a total of 300 backers! I feel like a modern Leonidas, without the impressive physique, slow motion fight scenes or weird xenophobia. To celebrate, I’ve naturally whipped up a little something for my noble patrons…

So yes, just ten percent remains — one for each syllable in a line of iambic pentameter. Thanks again to each and every one of you. I can’t wait to get this thing printed and sent out. If an acquaintance of yours keeps bashing on your door, pleading to be informed of any collections of daft Shakespearean verse, feel free to share the project with them. Otherwise, I hope you're all well and that your Halloweens were sufficiently spooky.

Yours rhythmically and rhymingly,
