If William Shakespeare were alive and well in Chiang Mai, today, then WHAT would he say?

Recommended Posts

He would probably be deported after a possible stint in a Thai jail. He did write a lot of plays about kings, which is a sensitive subject in Thailand.

Here in Chiang Mai, we do not have anything like the theatre of the round.

 

No theater, but you can enjoy the clowns of Chinese circus all over CM.

"I would give all my fame for a pot of ale, and safety."

Greater Uncle Bill would likely utter nowt in condemnation. Yet more likely  in terms of ironical satire in events.

There are among the throng  who desire perfection of soliloquy being sought yet failed in of  acquisition thereof in of  home regions. Further in error formed the assumption of  superior existence in a foreign community to became victim of the falsity of fashioning. The weight of the burden of change  is inevitablbly upon them , behind them, and  to the front. Of the emotions only reconciliation to the fact has merit. Who is not a victim before death mocks the denial of change or the lack of? The seething pool of humanity and all that in makes present in way foul or fashionable alters not the course of nor the individual  curse of.

This place be-ith similar to the place whence I was pulled from.

There be-ith more lights but hail the same 10 score and 12 whingers around me.

Ale be plentiful.

Pee Pop still exist.

The Ale House hath thee wench to which I can sample from thine bussom.

Less whench prefer it up thine bum.

I have trouble imagining the bard, with a shaved head and a Chang singlet.  But I am sure he would get the hang of it once he met the locals.

 

My mistress' eyes are nothing like the sun;
Coral is far more red than her lips' red;
If snow be white, why then her breasts are dun;
If hairs be wires, black wires grow on her head.
I have seen roses damask'd, red and white,
But no such roses see I in her cheeks;
And in some perfumes is there more delight
Than in the breath that from my mistress reeks.
I love to hear her speak, yet well I know
That music hath a far more pleasing sound;
I grant I never saw a goddess go;
My mistress, when she walks, treads on the ground:
   And yet, by heaven, I think my love as rare
  She wields a lance and dangling pair

Winner, winner, chicken dinner.   😀
