    O coward conscience, how dost thou afflict me!
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    Mad about the boy,
    I know it’s stupid to be mad about the boy,
    I’m so ashamed of it
    But must admit
    The sleepless nights I’ve had about the boy.

    He melts my foolish heart in every single scene.

    They put their Scotch or rye down
    And lie down.
