  8. There's letters seal'd: and my two schoolfellows, Whom I will trust as I will adders fang'd, They bear the mandate; they must sweep my way And marshal me to knavery. Let it work; For 'tis the sport to have the enginer Hoist with his own petar; and 't shall go hard But I will delve one yard below their mines And blow them at the moon: O, 'tis most sweet, When in one line two crafts directly meet.

      Then imitate the action of the tiger;

      Stiffen the sinews, summon up the blood,

      Disguise fair nature with hard-favoured rage;

      Then lend the eye a terrible aspect.
