Hamlet 2009

with 2 comments

To blog, or not to blog: that is the question:

Whether ’tis easier for the ego to skip

The slings and arrows of outrageous comments,

Or to take arms against a sea of views and hits,

And by opposing end them? To read: to sleep;

No more; and to blog to say whatever we want

Oh the heart-ache that shouldn’t be a shock

That traffic is heir to popularity

Devoutly to be wish’d. To read, to sleep;

To sleep: let my computer go to standby: ay, there’s a thought;

For in that sleep of death what blogs may come

When we have shuffled off this tired page,

Must give us RSS feeds: there’s the respect

That makes blogging of so short life;

For who would bear the whips and scorns of blogging,

The oppressor’s wrong, the top man’s page,

The pangs of despised traffic, the reader delay,

The lack of an office and the coffee

That patient merit of the unworthy effort,

When he himself might not want to read this

With a bare bodkin? Who says bodkin?,

To grunt and sweat on a keyboard,

That the dread of no one visiting,

The undiscover’d brilliance from a nobody

No surfers returns, puzzles me it will

And makes us rather bear those ills we have

Than fly to idea of expressing our thoughts about nothing?

Thus subconscious does make warriors of us all;

And thus bathe in the hue of 1200 x 800 resolution

Is awesome with the 24” dual monitor of thought,

And dreaming of enterprises advertising at the top

With this regard the spirit and soul turn awry,

And lose the name of action. – Type you now!

The fair Google! Ruler in thy web

Be all my sins archived.


Egg On!
