And let me speak to the yet unknowing...

Language: English

And let me speak to the yet unknowing world
How these things came about:
 so shall you hear of carnal, bloody,
and unnatural acts,
Of accidental judgments, casual slaughters,
Of deaths put on by cunning and forced cause,
And, in this upshot, purposes mistook
Fall'n on the inventors' reads:
all this can I truly deliver.


Translation(s): FRE FRE GER
