Captain Ahab he chased him,
But the whale quite outpaced him,
And Ahab, he died- what a trick!
by William Shakespeare

Which made Hamlet go a bit off his head.

Now the whole court of Denmark is dead.
"The Tell-Tale Heart"

Seriously hacked off the wrong guy.
But as he lay under the floor
His heart beat some more,
Causing the killer to yell "It was I!"
