Ah phew! This is gonna be one of the comedy plays, not one of those with all the stabbing and stuff

Some might say that Gemma already has been stabbed. I tend to think those people are terrible perverts: That one is so tepid and obvious, if someone is going to bother at all they should really tell a better sex joke--or at least a dirtier one--than that.

Yep! No murder, just misunderstandings and hijinks! (though for the record I tend to prefer Shakespeare's tragedies)

But wow, I see what may be nerdiest
possible of ways to embrace the mad.
To hear in blank all speech? The things school makes
us do. Or worse, the internet! Return!
I call upon dead tongues to return to
the grave where they belong. The dusty halls
of rarefied scholarship is the right tomb
to hold, contain, and bury this madness.

Are we but simple academic chaps
Ensnared by Shakespeare's witty verbal trap?

A fair and full response to that invokes
free will and fate, the acts of ancestors,
and what the present even is. I blame
the grade school obsession with torturing
the youth: In church the harm is King James verse,
in English class it's worship of "the Bard."
Many no doubt find such things harmless, fair,
and good, but such shackles of past bring strife.

This comic speaks to my experience,
Pentameter doth cause me much offense.

At this point such a rhythm natural comes,
Springs to my tongue with but a second's thought,
Yet there's a hair's breadth that doth lay betwixt
A fawning adoration and a hate
From excessive exposure to the bard.

I know this is very much supposed to be about Shakespearean plays and all, but since so many of them fit the same tempo, I’m really having a lot more fun reading this dialogue to the tune of Disney songs.

Aaah I don't know why that never occurred to me! That's amazing, now I'm picturing them singing all their lines, thank you for this gift
