Macbeth and Crucible Poems

Poems based upon the reading of Macbeth

Selfishness By: Cristian TalaVera

Some people they are deceiving

But some people really see it

The truth must come out

Guided by evil that say if u listen u will prosper 

You will do as it says and become a monster 

When it comes out some might not be happy

But, yes, there will be retaliation

Yes, Macbeth was a liar 

So he can always get his way 

While other people suffered he only flourished

As he became ill, people started to realize

And would kill any to secure his seat

A tyrant in the making

Not the best for Scotland 

While others seek revenge 

Not all will get it 

But the Thane of Fife, oh, he really wants it

Will do anything for the ones he loves 

Scotland and his family

He will do what needs to be done

He goes in with anger and aggression

And comes out with the head of a traitor

Macbeth By: Nick Vacca

I am Macbeth I’m not afraid of any death

I want to be powerful 

 the most powerful man of all 

I will soon to be king 

When I impair Duncan 

Once that’s done I will be one step closer 

One step closer 

to the wealth, pride and power

I must speak to the witches 

They will help me to see my destiny

But when I strike it couldn’t be me

Therefore I put my wife on ease

But once it’s done

It sure is fun 

Indeed my share has come 

Knock them out one by one

Oh, no, but what is that I see

It comes upon me without an ease

I stare, I shout without a doubt

For whom my time has come 

The war has just begun

Macbeth is Dead By: Spencer Boreham

Macbeth is dead!

Off with his head!

Scotland is in dread

Because of what Macbeth had said

After it all, after the tyrants fall

All the others seemed to fall down

Macduff has claimed the crown 

Once Banquo was done, the fight had just begun

Lady Macbeth shivered with fear with the witches in her ear

The blood could not be washed 

But at what cost

All for the lost

The blood has now been washed

There he stands, so big and tall

Carrying the grandest head of all

Macbeth is dead; Macbeth is dead!

All around him in grateful dread.

Staircase To Darkness  By: Esteve Barboza

Tyrant Macbeth 

Filled with dark and evil darkness

Power is what he wanted

Ambition was a major key 

Filled with dark and evil darkness

Cruel cruelty from the head to the toes

Ambition was a major key 

Ambition is what opens darkness

Cruel cruelty from the head to the toes

Wicked is running his life

Ambition is what opens darkness

Darkness that leads to sin after sin 

Wicked is running his life

The running won’t end until a powerful light lights it up

Darkness that leads to sin after sin 

Sin after sin is a stairway to hell 

The running won’t end until a powerful light lights it up

Already absence from light no light can pass 

Sin after sin is a stairway to hell 

Being burned for eternal life 

Already absence from light no light can pass 

The black desires don’t let him see

Being burned for entenal life 

Having the Devil next to you

The black desires don’t let him see

The crown on his head was what he ever wanted

Poem based upon the reading of The Crucible:

The Lie For Love vs The True Love By Kevin Leal -Avelino

One girl, Abigail Williams – her innocence lost in bed of John Proctor 

Suddenly the Devil is loose in Salem

The Village cries “witchcraft”

Abigail’s vengeance turns into Proctor’s Wife

suddenly the Devil is loose in Salem

Abigail is blaming others to save herself

Abigail’s vengeance turns to Proctor’s wife

Innocent Elizabeth is accused of witchcraft

Abigail is blaming others to save herself 

Abigail wants John Proctor so she blames Elizabeth

Innocent Elizabeth is accused of witchcraft

Elizabeth has a dark cloud over her innocent head 

Abigail wants John Proctor so she blames Elizabeth

Abigail’s love for John is from the devil’s home to the moon 

Elizabeth has a dark cloud over her innocent head

The darkness was so dark that a lie broke from her heart

Abigail’s love for John is from the devil’s home to the moon 

Her love is so much that darkness can’t separate her love

The darkness was so dark that a lie broke from her heart

Elizabeth told her first lie in the court of law 

Her love is so much that darkness can’t separate her love

Her love is guilty that she decided to leave and spread evil

Elizabeth told her first lie in the court of law

Elizabeth’s love is more than a lie
