Subject:        Hamlet Spoof Poem

The following comes from Richard Morris' collection _Assyrians_
(Brooklyn, NY: The Smith, 1968).  Apologies for strong language.

FORTINBRAS

A gloomy castle. Six corpses are scattered around on the floor.  Some of
them look as though they have been poisoned; others have been run
through with swords.  HORATIO stands looking at them.  He has a stupid
look on his face.  FORTINBRAS enters.  HORATIO pays him no attention,
but goes on staring at the bodies.  Then he begins to speak.

HORATIO: Goodnight, sweet prince - -

Before he can get any further, FORTINBRAS turns around and walks out,
muttering to himself.

FORTINBRAS: Fucking Danes.
