O pardon me, thou bleeding piece of earth,
That I am meek and gentle with these butchers!
Thou art the ruins of the noblest man
That ever lived in the tide of times.
Woe to the hand that shed this costly blood!
Over thy wounds now do I prophesy
(Which like dumb mouths do open their ruby lips
To beg the voice and utterance of my tongue),
A curse shall light upon the limbs of men... (3.1.269-277)
