Happy Birthday William Shakespeare -
The Da William Shakespeare Code

Happy birthday William Shakespeare!

I couldn't possibly not mention you on your probable birthday (and death-day) despite (or maybe because of) making my life miserable in high-school, as if high-school wasn't complicated and miserable enough without you...

Who were you William Shakespeare? Were you even at all? What did you look like? And what's the deal with the earring?

I mean, didn't you figure that by leaving this on your tomb, suspicions would arise, conspiracy theories would be told?
Good Friend, for Jesus' sake forbear
To dig the dust enclosed here:
Blessed be the man that spares these stones,
And curst be he that moves my bones.

    Edward de Vere's life closely paralleled the story told in Shakespeare's Hamlet. Polonius seems a lot like Cecil Burghley whose ward he was. His brother's name was Horace. Ah, but you can read all about it in my poem "The Man Who Wrote Shakespeare".
