Literary Inspiration

 

“When he is drunk asleep, or in his rage,

 Or in the incestuous pleasure of his bed;

 At gaming, swearing, or about some act

 That has no relish of salvation in’t;

 Then trip him, that his heels may kick at heaven,

 And that his soul may be as damn’d and black

 As Hell, whereto it goes.”

 

Hamlet wanted to send straight to Hell

His vile uncle – and, under the spell

    Of that limitless play,

    I am hoping someday

To push you down the same fiery well.

 

 

–Tom Riley
