Signifying Nothing

erupting from
self-obsessed maniacs
spreads terror among innocents.
Senseless violence accomplishes nothing.
There is no justification
for extreme enmity
concealed by
“Life’s but a walking shadow, a poor player
That struts and frets his hour upon the stage,
And then is heard no more.  It is a tale
Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury,
Signifying nothing.”

–William Shakespeare, from MacBeth, Act 5, scene 5, 24-28
