I've seen a production of *The Winter's Tale* in which Florizel waved a
joint when delivering his speech to Perdita that begins "These your
unusual weeds."

Rastafarian?  I think you're on to something. KJV's Psalm 137 is scored
no better than to a reggae beat.  (By the waters of Babylon...).  Rastas
do not merely "borrow lyrics" form KJV, they resurect and authenticate
the music which inspired Shakespeare.

And in KH4p2-

"I speak of Africa and golden joys."

Typical Rastafarian romanticization of the home continent.
