". . . little shall I grace my cause

In speaking for myself. Yet, by your gracious patience,

I will a round unvarnish'd tale deliver . . ."

(William Shakespeare's Othello, I.iii.88-90)

Discovering Your Inner Poet

My literature students greatly enjoyed this Matt Groening cartoon (from his "Life in Hell" series), especially after suffering through a month-long poetry unit (it really wasn't that bad, was it, guys?). Thought I would share it here for all of the tortured, introspective, artistic types that frequent this blog. Come on, admit it: there's a sensitive poet lurking inside every one of us. All he or she needs to come out is for each of us to embrace that sensitivity (or neurosis, as the case may be).
