1 The Seven Ages of Man by William Shakespeare This is really part of a play but people liked it so much we read it separately. 2
All the worlds a stageAnd all the men and women merely players
3 They have their exits and entrancesAnd one man in his time plays many partsHis acts being seven ages. This just means that one person will be several different things/ people in his or her lifetime. 4
At first the infantMewling and puking in the nurses arms.
This is just as nasty as it sounds...
Then the whining schoolboy with his satchelAnd shining morning face creeping like snailUnwillingly to school.
And then the loverSighing like furnace with a woeful balladMade to his mistress eyebrow.
Then a soldierFull of strange oaths and bearded like the pard
I CUSS A LOT! 8
Jealous in honour sudden and quick in quarrelSeeking the bubble reputationEven in the cannons mouth.
Im stupid brave! 9
And then the justiceIn fair round belly with good capon lindWith eyes severe and beard of formal cut
Full of wise saws and modern instancesAnd so he plays his part.
Im important and have lots of helpful things to say! 11
The sixth age shiftsInto the lean and slipperd pantaloonWith spectacles on nose and pouch on sideHis youthful hose well savd a world too wideFor his shrunk shank and his big manly voiceTurning again towards childish treble pipesAnd whistles in his sound.
12 What does all of that mean pantaloons spectacles youthful hose childish treble pipes whistles 13
Last scene of allThat ends this strange eventful historyIs second childishness and mere oblivion
What are we talking about here
Sans teeth sans eyes sans taste sans everything.
15 So what is the point
Just for fun
