From T.S. Eliot's "Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock"

" No! I am not Prince Hamlet, nor was meant to be;
Am an attendant lord, one that will do
To swell a progress, start a scene or two,
Advise the prince: no doubt, an easy tool,
Deferential, glad to be of use,
Politic, cautious, and meticulous;
Full of high sentence, but a bit obtuse;
At times, indeed, almost ridiculous -
Almost, at times, the Fool."

We read that today in English because Mrs. D. wasn't there and Mr. P. was all like... "What are you supposed to be doing? Let's read T.S. Eliot!" So we did. It wasn't really productive, but it got me interested. So that's probably what matters.

My life has been taken over by homework. I don't like it this way. It makes me cry with frustration. Stupid school.

Not all of us are meant to be Prince Hamlet.
