Haiku of Michael Cassio

* This is another haiku set from my AP Lit project for Othello.  This one is essentially about the character of Michael Cassio and what he goes through.*

Haiku of Michael Cassio

A noble soldier.
A rare, truly honest man.
Michael Cassio.

Deceived by Iago.
Pressured to drink alcohol.
He can’t handle it.

Becomes wild while drunk.
Shatters his reputation,
Through drunken fighting.

Manipulated,
Pawn in Iago’s evil plan.
An innocent man.

Noble to the end.
Gives Othello the dagger.
Imparts redemption.
