  25. 25. G: What should we say, my lord? H: Why, any thing, but to the purpose. You were sent for… G: My lord, we were sent for. H: I will tell you why; so shall my anticipation prevent your discovery, and your secrecy to the king and queen moult no feather. I have of late—but wherefore I know not--lost all my mirth, forgone all custom of exercises; and indeed it goes so heavily with my disposition that this goodly frame, the earth, seems to me a sterile promontory, this most excellent canopy, the air, look you, this brave o'erhanging firmament, this majestical roof fretted with golden fire, why, it appears no other thing to me than a foul and pestilent congregation of vapours. What a piece of work is a man! how noble in reason! how infinite in faculty! in form and moving how express and admirable! in action how like an angel! in apprehension how like a god! the beauty of the world! the paragon of animals! And yet, to me, what is this quintessence of dust? man delights not me: no, nor woman neither, though by your smiling you seem to say so. R: My lord, there was no such stuff in my thoughts. Shakespeare, Hamlet, Act II Scene II, ‘What a piece of work is a man’ speech
  26. 26. ACT I SCENE I Castle battlements [Enter H, followed by G.] G: Oi! Mush! H: Yer? G: I was fucked! [Exit G.] H: O Fuck. [Exit H.] SCENE II The Throneroom. [Enter C, Ger, H, courtiers.] C: Oi! You, H, give over! H: Fuck off, won't you? [Exit C, Ger, courtiers.] H: (Alone) They could have fucking waited. [Enter Hor:.] Hor: Oi! Watcha cock! H: Weeeeey! [Exeunt.] SCENE III O's Bedroom. [Enter O and L.] L: I'm fucking off now. Watch H doesn't slip you one while I'm gone. O: I'll be fucked if he does. [Exeunt.] etc ‘The Skinhead Hamlet’, by Richard Curtis – who also wrote ‘Blackadder’
  27. 27. I CAUGHT this morning morning's minion, kingdom of daylight's dauphin, dapple-dawn-drawn Falcon, in his riding Of the rolling level underneath him steady air, and striding High there, how he rung upon the rein of a wimpling wing In his ecstasy! then off, off forth on swing, As a skate's heel sweeps smooth on a bow-bend: the hurl and gliding Rebuffed the big wind. My heart in hiding Stirred for a bird, - the achieve of; the mastery of the thing! Brute beauty and valour and act, oh, air, pride, plume, here Buckle! AND the fire that breaks from thee then, a billion Times told lovelier, more dangerous, O my chevalier! No wonder of it: shéer plód makes plough down sillion Shine, and blue-bleak embers, ah my dear, Fall, gall themselves, and gash gold-vermillion. Gerard Manley Hopkins, ‘The Windhover’, dedicated To Christ our Lord
  28. 28. First things first, I poppa, freaks all the honeys Dummies - playboy bunnies, those wantin’ money Those the ones I like ‘cause they don’t get nathan’ But penetration, unless it smells like sanitation Garbage, I turn like doorknobs Heart throb, never, black and ugly as ever However, I stay coochied down to the socks Rings and watch filled with rocks And my jam knock in the Mitsubishi Girls pee pee when they see me, Nava-hoes creep me in they tee pee As I lay down laws like I lay carpet Stop it - if you think your gonna make a profit [Rough (!) translation: As a general rule, I perform deviant sexual acts with women of all kinds, including but not limited to those with limited intellect, nude magazine models, and prostitutes. I particularly enjoy sexual encounters with the latter group as they are generally disappointed in the fact that they only receive normal intercourse unless they are exceptionally hygenic. Although I am extremely unattractive, I am able to engage in these types of sexual acts with some regularity. Perhaps my sexual success is somehow related to my fancy and expensive jewelry. I enjoy playing my music loudly on my car stereo. Apparently, women enjoy this also because they become sexually aroused when they see me driving. Oddly enough, when I visit the Native American reservations, some of the more sexually promiscuous Indian women attempt to seduce me in their homes as I tell them what to do. Their intent is to divest me of my earnings. Such actions are unacceptable.] Artist: Notorious B.I.G. Album: Ready to Die Song: One more chance (remix)
