What bespoken images art these?


In April did the Avon Bard appear,
    and in that self-same month did he depart
whilst sun shone bright with ever-fulsome sneer
    and Springtime dallied chill as boggler's art.
Today, we halt anon and dream awhile
    to make our vulgar speeches simular,
frail trump'ries though they prove to be, and smile
    in epilogue to his craft insular.
Thus, here below, presented in array,
    art twenty iterations tender-writ
that if poor William wert alive today,
    he would belike have penned of his own wit.

Jacobean counter-arguments on the benefits of tobacco

While looking up some info for a new project I'm working on with my friend Dave, I ran across an unexpectedly funny (in a "oh no he didn't just write that" kind of way) treatise by King James VI of Scotland and I of England — that is, the guy who authorized the creation of the King James Version of the bible.




Thank you for visiting my site. I am Curtis Weyant — a writer, musician and thinker of deep thoughts in the tradition of estimable personages such as Jack Handy and the Scarecrow from The Wizard of Oz.

Feel free to check out my blog, stories and poems. Be sure especially to take a look at my serial novel, Freedom Plot and some of my more popular posts, including The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe as a Twitter feed and my review of Sam Harris' book, "Free Will".
