William Shakespeare from Hamlet (III, i, 65-68)

“To sleep, perchance to dream;

Ay, there’s the rub,

For in that sleep of death,

what dreams may come,”

by William Shakespeare


Soliloquy? “To be or not to be”? Don’t tell anyone,

but my wife hears me all the time

talking to myself. Don’t spread it around,

they might think I’m crazy. Well,

I’m old and write poetry, so I earned my

right to be somewhat nutty? So, go ahead make

my day and call me a crazy old F_RT.

Committing suicide? You will definitely know,

‘what dreams may come’.

Therefore, I wouldn’t take

that dare if I were you.

In place of that, I shall watch

my precious kitty sleep

and wake him with a kiss

on his sweet little forehead

and keep on writing as I do

until the end engulfs

me

and

my

keyboard.
