Thug Notes on BET: Romeo & Juliet Summary & Analysis
Whas’ crackin, B? Today we DYIN fo’ some sweet lovin’ with Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare.
Two hood rich crews called the Montagues and Capulets been beefin’ fo years. Shit REALLY hit the fan when smooth-talkin Romeo Montague falls balls-deep in love with Juliet Capulet. They try to keep they XXX booty bangin’ on the DL, but eventually all dat secrecy and family blood spillin’ lead both of em to an early grave. Damn.
Man it sho do suck a fat one dat things ended up so raw for ol Romeo and Juliet. But is it THEIR fault shit got so whack?
Could be they just comin’ out WAY too hard when chasin’ summodat oo- wee. I mean these kids don’t know how to keep nuthin’ chill. They willin to do ANYTHING to get in eachotha’s pants. Maybe they shoulda slowed their roll like Friar Lawrence sayin’:
Sparky reads quote: Friar Laurence: These violent delights have violent ends… Therefore love moderately.(2.5.9-14)
Or could be dat it ain’t their fault at all, but dat fate doin our lovas straight dirty. Maybe that’s why in the prologue, Da Bard Willy Shakes say deez lovers are “star- crossed”- meaning fate itself gonna go out of its way to fuck their day up.
Or maybe their love was jus’ too pure fo’ a world full a’ haters and fakers. Maybe it ain’t our lovas dat got da flaws. Maybe it’s da world.
Or maybe bad shit happens to horny kids when they actin’ like dumbasses. Plain and simple. Naw mean? Sparky Sweets OUT.
