My dearest, Angelica, tomorrow and tomorrow and tomorrow
Creeps in this petty pace from day to day
I trust you'll understand the reference to another Scottish tragedy without my having to name the play
They think me Macbeth, and ambition is my folly
I'm a polymath, a pain in the ass, a massive pain
Madison is Banquo, Jefferson's Macduff
And Birnam Wood is Congress on its way to Dunsinane

Do you have to live an ocean away
Thoughts of you subside
Then I get another letter
I cannot put the notion away

My dearest Alexander
You must get through to Jefferson
Sit down with him and compromise
Don't stop 'til you agree
Your favourite older sister
Angelica, reminds you
There's someone in your corner all the way across the sea
Verse 26
In a letter I received from you two weeks ago
I noticed a comma in the middle of a phrase
It changed the meaning, did you intend this
One stroke and you've consumed my waking days, it says

My dearest Angelica

My dearest, Angelica

Anyway, all this to say
I'm coming home this summer at my sister's invitation
