Excerpt
Excerpt: JEALOSIE; FOND woman, which would?st have thy husband die, And yet complain?st of his great jealosie; If swolne with poyson, hee Jay in?his last bed, His body with a sere-barke covered, Drawing his breath, as thick and short, as can The nimblest crocheting Musitian, Ready with loathsome vomiting to spue His Soule out of one hell, into a new, Made deafe with his poore kindreds howling cries, Begging with few feign?d teares, great legacies, Thou would?st not weepe, but jolly,?and frolicke bee, As a slave, which to morrow should be free; Yet weep?st thou, when thou seest him hungerly Swallow his owne death, hearts-bane jealousies O give him many thanks, he?is courteous, That in suspecting kindly warneth us. Wee must not, as wee us?d, flout openly, In scoffing ridles, his deformitie; Nor at his boord together being satt, With words, nor touch, scarce lookes adulterate. Nor when he swolne, and pamper?d with great fare Sits downe, and snorts, cag?d in his basket chaire, Must wee usurpe his owne bed any more, Nor kisse and play in his house, as before. Now I see many dangers; for that is His realme, his castle, and his diocesse. But if, as envious men, which would revile Their Prince, or coyne his gold, themselves exile Into another countrie,?and doe it there, Wee play?in another house, what should we feare? There we will scorne his household policies, His seely plots, and pensionary spies, As the inhabitants of Thames right side Do Londons Major; or Germans, the Popes pride.
