The Poetic Works of Peter Marlborough

Hamlet

To learn, or not to learn that is the question

Whether 'tis nobler to suffer

The slings and arrows of outrageous Past Masters,

Or to oppose them in their quest

And by opposing cease their anger.

To read and not to learn

To sleep no more and end the heartache

And the thousand looks the mind is heir to.

To sleep perchance to dream there's the rub

For in that sleep, to dream, to learn the ritual.

When we shuffle from the Lodge,

Must give pause to think.

To seek respect and not calamity of our deeds

Among our Brethren
