Oh, Polonius, Polonius…stabbed cruelly to death! My sweet child, what has happened to you? You’ve gone mad! My darling Hamlet used to be so innocent and playful...

He was too busy ruling the country and it felt like he didn’t care about me. My eye began to wander and it was at this family feast that my feelings towards Claudius became so strong. Could you blame me if my eye began to wander? He showered me with
