  • Kats paraphrase of Shakespeares Sonnet 141 [Though, strictly speaking, this isn't a paraphrase. It is just inspired by sonnet 141 (though it is basically just an original poem from the screenwriters).]

    I hate the way you talk to me, and the way you cut your hair.

    I hate the way you drive my car,

    I hate it when you stare.

    I hate your big dumb combat boots, and the way you read my mind.

    I hate you so much it makes me sick, it even makes my rhyme.

    I hate the way you're always right, I hate it when you lie,

    I hate it when you make me laugh, even worse when you make me cry.

    I hate it when you're not around and the fact that you didn't call

    but mostly I hate the way I don't hate you, not even close, not even a little bit, not even at all.

    Sonnet 141

    In faith, I do not love thee with mine eyes,

    For they in thee a thousand errors note;

    But 'tis my heart that loves what they despise,

    Who in despite of view is pleased to dote;

    Nor are mine ears with thy tongue's tune delighted,

    Nor tender feeling, to base touches prone,

    Nor taste, nor smell, desire to be invited

    To any sensual feast* with thee alone*:

    But my five wits* nor my five senses can

    Dissuade one foolish heart from serving thee,

    Who leaves unsway'd the likeness of a man*,

    Thy proud hearts slave and vassal wretch to be:

    Only my plague thus far I count my gain,

    That she that makes me sin awards me pain.
