Excerpt from Thomas Ã? Becket, a Tragedy: And Other Poems

TO be down-trodden in the mire of streets. And yet, why not? Doth not this artful Saxon Hold the great seal Of England in his clutches Ride with the king, dice, drink, and dine with him Why not, when he who wears the diadem Of Norman William takes the cast-off wife Of Louis, king Of France, and makes her mistress Of the same bed where William's holy queen In travail brought forth princes to this realm 7 Why not, when every palace in the kingdom Haunted by ghosts Of his dread predecessors When Winchester and Woodstock, Westminster Are playhouses, where Circe keeps her court, As hell or Aquitaine had come to London york. Dares the justiciary to mock the king? Glan. I do not mock the king. Could I but see This leprosy, which we do call the queen, Touched by the healing hand Of penitence, My Lord Archbishop, gladly I'd give up The keys Of Henry's treasury and his mace.
