    “…thou has metamorphized me,
    Made me neglect my studies, lose my time,
    War with good counsel, set the world at naught;
    Made wit with musing weak, heart sick with
    thought.” – The Two Gentlement of Verona

At the same time as we are discussing the sonnets, this week the Shakespeare discussion group I participate in also began reading The Two Gentlemen of Verona.  The above lines are in the very first act. They are about love, but again, I can easily see them as describing madness; this time the madness that Donald Trump inflicts on others.  Love and madness really are too, too similar.
