Fortunately for Billy, he had an audience out there for his unkempt work, and somehow, beyond reason, his "Sonnet 18" is considered one of the most influential poems in the world. I'd take credit for this, but he didn't even take my corrections into consideration!
Kids those days!
P.S. I was never actually a professor. In fact, I wasn't even alive in the 1500s believe it or not. Also, I actually like Shakespeare's works; I'm just sayin' shit.
