You shall not go.

It’s really quite something
To lay hands on a prince and keep him from his will.
Horatio is negotiating this tricky problem
By speaking to the Prince
In a formal You
While giving him a denial.
There is no way to be deferential
While restraining a person.
Pardon me, my lord, while I cuff you.
Excuse me, sire, I’m just going to
Grip your arms and ignore your struggles.
It takes some guts, this.
Guts, and a firm belief that following a ghost is really
Not a great idea.
