A Compound by any other name would smell as corrupt
“Sum background Edukshun”
"A rose by any other name would smell as sweet" is a commonly quoted part of a dialogue in William Shakespeare’s play Romeo and Juliet, in which Juliet argues that the names of things do not matter, only what things are! In the play Romeo and Juliet, the line is said by Juliet in reference to Romeo's house.
Now for the Rewritten Shakespear, emphasis on the spear.
O JZ, JZ! Wherefore art thou JZ?
Deny thy greed and refuse thy corruption
And I'll no longer be a nosy madam.
Shall I hear more, or shall I cry racism at this?
'Tis but thy house that is my enemy;
Thou art thyself, though not a corrupt git?
What's Compound? it is nor hand, nor foot,
Nor arm, nor face, nor any other part
Belonging to a black man. O, be some other name!
What's in a name? That which we call a rose
By any other name would smell as sweet;
So a compound would, were he not compound call'd,
Retain that dear perfection which he owes
Without that title. JZ, doff thy name,
I take thee at thy word:
Call me but love, and I'll be new baptized;
Henceforth I never will build a corrupt compound.
Now my dear little sheeple it is not the supposed racist name of this ‘corrupt tax built leviathan’ that is the issue it is the fact that we the people are paying over half a BILLION Rand for someone’s private home and driveway!!
