'Tis but thy name that is my enemy;
Thou art thyself, though not from IKEA
What's IKEA? it is nor desk, nor chair,
Nor kitchen, nor dining, nor any other part
Belonging to a home. O, be some other name!
What's in a name? that which we call a rose
By any other name would smell as sweet;
So IKEA would, were it not IKEA call'd,
Retain that dear perfection which he owes
Without that title. IKEA, doff thy name,
And for that name which is no part of thee
Take all my money.
