Shakespeare's Condom!

This beautiful photo was taken at the C. Douglas Ramey Ampitheater in Louisville, KY during their annual "Shakespeare In Central Park" festival. In honor of the Bard, I composed this entire post as a Shakespearean Sonnet in Iambic Pentameter with an ABAB-CDCD-EFEF-GG rhyming sequence. Enjoy!

Andrew Ludwig brings us this prize! Oh Joy!

Snapped with a lens meant for actors on stage;

He spied this prize midday and did employ

A point-and-click device of the new age.

Shot in K-Y! Jelly? Not that, the State!

Shakespeare’s players performed works by the Bard;

They did not know that there behind did wait

A skin, latex and used by one quite hard.

Safe-Sex is the only way to do it;

To wrap or not to wrap? ‘Tis no question!

Just be quite sure that what you buy does fit

Or else you’ll be at a Lamaze Session.

If you may find condoms throughout this land

Be like Andrew, with camera in hand!
