I. Titus Andronicus

 

Fiddledy-diddledy

Titus Andronicus

Wouldn’t show mercy, let

Alarbus die. 

 

Vengeful Tamora goes

Anthropophagical,  

Eating the rest of her

Sons in a pie.

 

II. Romeo and Juliet

 

Hufflety-pufflety

Romeo Montague 

Haplessly falls for a

Capulet’s charm.   

 

Formerly quarreling

Patresfamilias

Make it up after their

Kids buy the farm.

 

 

III. Richard III

 

Hickory-dickory

Cardinal Bourchier

Has a grand total of

Four lines to say.

 

Other names suitably

Double-dactylian

Sadly don’t feature at

All in this play.
