“Besides, this sorrow is an enemy,
And would usurp upon my watery eyes
And make them blind with tributary tears.
Then which way shall I find Revenge’s cave?”—William Shakespeare, Titus Andronicus, Act III, scene ii, lines 268-71 (There is nothing Titus does better than revenge)
“Demetrius: Villain, what hast thou done?
Aaron: That which thou canst not undo.
Chiron: Thou hast undone our mother.
Aaron: Villain, I have done thy mother.”—William Shakespeare, Titus Andronicus, Act IV, scene ii, lines 73-6
As part of my character, Brad Allen, in the play Spirits to Enforce, I’ve been writing at least two haikus every rehearsal. I’ve got quite a lot now, and am rather proud of them. Keep in mind that they are written in character.
