In college he had left behind the geek
of former years of science and high math,
instead he studied theatre's technique,
deciding to pursue an actor's path.
Like sonnets, English plays have lost appeal,
the classics aren't the mainstream that they were,
for stage his booming vocals were ideal,
but lack of work continued to deter.
Performing in an outdoor Shakespeare sketch,
and showing wit while passioned talent hides,
he entertains to let his moxie stretch,
and audiences love his trite asides.
Performing in these Renaissance bazaars
fulfills the urge, transcending acting scars.
