Tomorrow and tomorrow... (Shakespeare)


Act 1..Scene 1

Witches pose the time and place:

When the hurly-burly's done

And the battle's lost and won..

Fair/foul (fog and filthy air)

Mark appearing oppositions

And forebodings in Scene 1...

Scene 2

A bleeding Captain reports well

Of a brave Macbeth

Who overcame a doubtful clinging

As swimmers choking their art..

And brandishing steel accomplished 

valiant beheading..

We view here the planted seed of

A looming path of destruction...
