Hamlet in the Space Allotted

Hammie’s poor old daddy died.
Massa Shakie don’t tell why.

Mommy marries Uncle Goat.
Little Hammie sees a ghost.

Hammie is depressed and vexed.
What should a troubled Dane do next?

Is he crazy or telling lies?
No matter; lots of people die.

Who’s this guy, Fortinbras?
Never mind, the kingdom’s lost.
