Shakespearean Sonnets

One thing you won't learn, asking Google or Jeeves:
Our friend Mr. Shakespeare was the greatest of theives.
Every poem and play and each clever notion
Was a stolen idea for his own self promotion.

I know this because I witnessed it all,
Being a quiet and sly little fly on the wall.
So listen intently and take careful note,
As I tell of the genius behind all that he wrote:

Unless Mr. Shakespeare had a fondness for dresses,
And wore all his hair in long ribboned tresses,
And covered his head in fine lacy bonnets,
His wife was the one who wrote all those sonnets.
