The Shakespeare Programming Language

This is possibly the greatest programming language ever invented; the Shakespeare Programming Language (SPL).

The following program reverses the characters in a given string:

Othello, a stacky man.
Lady Macbeth, who pushes him around till he pops.

Act I: The one and only.

Scene I: In the beginning, there was nothing.

[Enter Othello and Lady Macbeth]

You are nothing!

Scene II: Pushing to the very end.

Lady Macbeth:
Open your mind! Remember yourself.

You are as hard as the sum of yourself and a stone wall. Am I as horrid as a flirt-gill?

Lady Macbeth:
If not, let us return to scene II. Recall your imminent death!

You are as small as the difference between yourself and a hair!

Scene III: Once you pop, you can't stop!

Lady Macbeth:
Recall your unhappy childhood. Speak your mind!

You are as vile as the sum of yourself and a toad! Are you better than nothing?

Lady Macbeth:
If so, let us return to scene III.

Scene IV: The end.
