McMurphy to Clive

 I feel the need to express my opinion about the way you lived your life. After all here we both are, dead as a result of the paths we decided to take in life. Although, let’s be honest I went out in a heroic way in order to help out my ward. You, on the other hand should think over the events that led to your murder and the murder of your friend. Nothing came out of your double murders and I found them quite unnecessary. A real man, such as me, goes out for a cause and in doing so becomes a hero. Well enough about my heroic nature, I will cut strait to the point.  Now, I’m gonna get real weird with it because “I don’t seem able to get it straight in my mind…” why you copied Beethoven’s Ode to Joy (196). I’m a terribly good con man myself but I’m all sneaky when I go about it and nobody can call me out on a good con. So I find it hard to understand how you messed up so bad. I spent a great deal of time considering it a testament to your sanity,  but let me tell you I know insanity, lived around it for a good while and “As near as I can tell you’re not any crazier than the average asshole on the street”(65). With your sanity intact and your future on the line I cannot for the life of me understand your absurd choice to copy Ode to Joy.
            Well McMurphy, I am simply “a genius” (143). Before I came to the musical world “there had been no Beethovens” and I find myself just as talented at the great man himself (144).
