The second author I decided to attempt to emulate with a remixed version of The Gondolier is none other than Shakespeare.
The black prow of my gondola so swift,
Cut smoothly through the waters o so calm,
Upon canals the craft gives me a lift
It’s many years of service like a charm.
For many passengers along the way
Through city’s waters I have been a guide
For generations of the service pay
ancient kin of mine who have now died.
The sun sank down upon the city old,
And turned the water to a lane of ink
Of ribbon lain between the bricks of gold
Of sandstone buildings warm and gold and pink
breathed in deeply of the evening breeze,
No city stands that is more beautiful
This wondrous city of canals doth please
So never is a day within it dull
As the boat into its mooring eased
I stopped to gaze with satisfied huzzahs
Another day in which I was so pleased
To be beneath the darking skies of Mars.
