As a writer, playwright, and poet, I can’t help being annoyed by many “established” metaphors.  While any good writer, in a postmodernist sense, will (should) be wary of such notions and can use them advantageously, memorabilia of bygone eras garble new images in the unwitting reader.  But in any case, I feel most can appreciate the playfully coy nature of the juxtaposition. Or perhaps, I’ve created a monster. ;P

    Glad I understand this metaphor because doing Shakespeare is hard without it

    I didn’t even know this was a thing, and I use death as an extensive metaphor for lots of things. Sex is not among them...
