We are studying this play in school, and we have reached the part in which the prince Morroco has opened the gold casket, and has received, rather than Portia's picture (as that would mean he would have won the bet type dealy) a skull and a riddle poem dealy that says:

'All that glisters is not gold,
Often have you heard that told;
Many a man his life hath sold
But my outside to behold:
Gilded tombs do worms infold.
Had you been as wise as bold,
Young in limbs, in judgment old,
Your answer had not been inscroll'd:
Fare you well, your suit is cold.'

What is this saying?
or rather, what do you think it is saying?

It means that you have herpes.
There ain't no moral to this story at all. Anything I tell you very well could be a lie.

I think in simple terms;

"You gonna die, bitch".


Either that or "Give me my pound of flesh", or something.
