  • Tremble, thou wretch, That hast within thee undivulged crimes Unwhipp’d of justice: hide thee, thou bloody hand; Thou perjur’d, and thou simular man of virtue That art incestuous: caitiff, to pieces shake That under covert and convenient seeming Hast practis’d on man’s life: close pent-up guilts, Rive your concealing continents, and cry These dreadful summoners grace.
