    The Civil Wars Between the Two Houses of Lancaster and York (Selection)

    105

    "Yet since that other men's iniquity

    Calls on the sword of wrath against my will,

    And that themselves exact this cruelty,

    And I constrained am this blood to spill:

    165

    Then on, my masters, on courageously,

    True-hearted subjects against traitors ill,

    And spare not them who seek to spoil us all,

    Whose foul confused end soon see you shall."
