A Sonnet To Alteil

not sure if this is Art or not as all I did was modify Hamlet, but I posted in general - if it's art someone move it!
DISCLAIMER: Sorry if I offend anyone by editing Shakespeare.
Enjoy.

To buy, or not to buy: that is the question:
Weather 'tis nobler in the arena to suffer
The slings and arrows of outrageous (mis)fortune
Or to take cards against the sea of Gowen,
and by opposing end them? To buy: to win.
No more; and by a win to say we end
The heart-ache and the thousand natural shocks
That defeat is heir to, 'tis a consummation
Devoutly to be wish'd. To buy, to win;
To win: perchance to dominate: ay, there's the key;
For in that victory what RP rankings may come,
When we have done away with the Big Refess,
Must give us pause: there's the respect
That makes calamity of so long loss;
For who would bear the whips and scorns of [card=208]Dalos[/card],
The [card=192]Coatl's[/card] wrong, the Crusher's contumely,
The pangs of the [card=193]burning sun[/card], the [card=31]soul bind's[/card] delay,
The insolence of [card=79]Vordore[/card] and the spurns
That patient merit of the unworthy takes,
When he himself might his quietus make
With a bare [card=186]judgment hammer[/card]? what file would survive,
To grunt and sweat under [card=26]endless night[/card] ,
But that the dread of something after defeat,
The undiscover'd destruction from whose bourn
No traveller returns, puzzles the will
And makes us rather bear those failures we have
Than fly to others that we know not of?
Thus fear does make cowards of us all;
And thus the native hue of resolution
Is sicklied o'er with the pale cast of thought,
And enterprises of great pith and moment
With this regard their currents turn awry,
And lose the name of action. - Soft you now!
The fair Alteil! Nymph, in thy orisons
Be all my sins remember'd.

Ok so after editing it there wasn't alot of changes, apparently Hamlet expresses the feeling of relentless defeat with a few quick word changes and analogy's.

I promise the next time I do something like this that it will be more awesome!
