Such self-centred woe

* such self centred woe *
Expressions of love could not be
More self centred and unproductive
Than Romeo and Juliet focused only
On mutual infatuation and destruction
Unable to see a broader canvas
On which life and loving could be lived
Blinded by family disputes
Loyalties tenuous and obtuse
Romeo being chemically unbalanced
Juvenile and frankly homicidal
Leaves pain behind him
A trail of stupidity
Impetuous acts and criminal culpability
His death resolves for Verona
Issues judicial and family feuds
Leaves all at peace once more
Between Capulet and Montague.
