Shakespeare’s “To be or not to be …”
Heartbroken Poetess' Taboos!
by William Shakespeare
by Ana Gram
To be or not to be, that is the question;
Whether 'tis nobler in the mind to suffer
The slings and arrows of outrageous fortune,
Or to take arms against a sea of troubles,
And by opposing, end them. To die, to sleep;
No more; and by a sleep to say we end
The heart-ache and the thousand natural shocks
That flesh is heir to — 'tis a consummation
Devoutly to be wish'd. To die, to sleep;
To sleep, perchance to dream. Ay, there's the rub,
For in that sleep of death what dreams may come,
When we have shuffled off this mortal coil,
Must give us pause. There's the respect
That makes calamity of so long life,
For who would bear the whips and scorns of time,
Th'oppressor's wrong, the proud man's contumely,
The pangs of despised love, the law's delay,
The insolence of office, and the spurns
That patient merit of th'unworthy takes,
When he himself might his quietus make
With a bare bodkin? who would fardels bear,
To grunt and sweat under a weary life,
But that the dread of something after death,
The undiscovered country from whose bourn
No traveller returns, puzzles the will,
And makes us rather bear those ills we have
Than fly to others that we know not of?
Thus conscience does make cowards of us all,
And thus the native hue of resolution
Is sicklied o'er with the pale cast of thought,
And enterprises of great pitch and moment
With this regard their currents turn awry,
And lose the name of action.
Thee, Tintoretto, Hobbes’ quotations?!
Noblemen Rutherford, whiten fetishist,
Unfortunate storehouses forwarding goals,
Breakfasting tomatoes: arouses aortal
Independent pathos, epistemology bod!
Wane?! Postembryonal soya needed.
Handshaker hath underclothes, attach soutane!
Laticiferous outstation mishmash then,
Wildebeest hoot, deviously potted.
Chandlery pothouse, cerebrate heptameters,
Metaphysical softhearted hematoma frowned,
Unflavored falsettos which whiffle home
Therapeutist rectum’s gushes peeves,
Monotheist allogamy lack taffies
Umbilicated, shopworn forefather’s showdown.
Nympholept sportswoman’s doughnut sorcerer,
Typal twelvefold sheepshead diagnoses,
Sheep heron cutoff confidentialness
Thankworthy atheism patent outfitter
Wifelike questing mishmash theme, huh?
Saudi wheelbarrow, drawknife bloodbath,
Wednesday: infatuate wrangler tour,
Throat afterthought manifested deathbed,
Whichsoever confronted murderous bounty,
Starlets pulverulent whirler nozzle,
Weakhearted messiah overall sunbathers,
Thankworthy newton flatfoot ethos,
Fearless unesco woodchucks declamations,
Noah hunted unfavorite silhouettes,
Wholehearted utopistic ghostlike catfish,
Apart amended fingerpost ethnocentrism,
Thitherward unwary thirst resurrecting
Enchanted fool anatomies.
