  • Hear you me, Jessica: Lock up my doors, and when you hear the drum, And the vile squealing of the wry-neck’d fife, Clamber not you up to the casements then, Nor thrust your head into the public street To gaze on Christian fools with varnish’d faces; But stop my house’s ears— I mean my casements; Let not the sound of shallow fopp’ry enter My sober house.
