Puck's Monologue - by Year 8

/ Categories: General

Year 8 have been developing Puck’s monologue by inventing some extra pranks, as part of their study of William Shakespeare's 'A Midsummer Nights Dream'.


I am a master mind. 

 No one can stop me,  

For I can turn who I desire, 

Into a flaming fire. 

Do not mess with I, 

For thou who does, 

Will DIE! 

I can turn thou into an infectious pig, 

Or a mangled goat, 

Maybe even a chocked frog, 

If thou decides to bother me, 

A horrible monster thou will be. 


Fly above, 

I do, 

For I know all the latest gossip, 

Fiddle is my middle name. 

I cause problems, 

Without thou knowing, 

For I am the man who is going, 

I will fiddle in relationships, 

It's all part of the fun, 

Don't stop me, 

Fun will be done. 


Oh and the best for last thou cannot forget, 

How I pull a fine strand of hair, 

From the Mair, 

But if I fiddle to far with the goatish man, 

I will end in deep, deep despair. 

Fear not as I (Puck) do not care, 

Thou canker- blossom can do what thou wants, 

He won't find me, 

 For I am he. 



Thou places Love-in-idleness on their eyes 

To make thou second guess where thou's hearts truly lies. 

Robin sees a lone man in the woods, 

I shall gift him with an ass's ears and sometimes its hooves. 

And maybe if there is another alone, 

They to shall have love-in-idleness placed when on their throne. 

Coincidentally they shall fall in love, 

And those onlookers shall witness their friend with an ass. 

If amid a crowd I shall make a woman grow a mustache, 

She shall get weird looks and glares, 

She shall be scared, 

And thou shall roar with laughter. 



I theif the food from the earthly youthfuls, 

Scare them with thee voices and misbehaviour,  

And manipulate the children to reveal what is truthful, 

Once to call 'a measle' to a senior. 

And I admire the beatings of the child, 

And sometime scarrings to be shown, 

The horror and disgust makes me wild, 

I therefore go back to my Oberon. 


And did I ever tell you about Titania? 

How I ever so loved to gobble her reputation. 

The many schemes Oberon and I to event. 

Where that errant, beef- witting vixen got her payback. 

A celebration was held and she was to tell her story, 

About all of her experiences and glories, 

To when she was about to leave the stage, 

I footed on the edge of her dress and tore it like a page. 

Thou all mortified look of others and her, 

And the atmosphere filled with laughter, 

As Titania stormed away crying, 

Thus that boar-pig dreaded that day.
