ASOLANDO: ARCADES AMBO, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: You blame me that I ran away?
Last Line: My case and saves my toe from shoots.


A. You blame me that I ran away?
Why, Sir, the enemy advanced:
Balls flew about, and -- who can say
But one, if I stood firm, had glanced
In my direction? Cowardice?
I only know we don't live twice,
Therefore -- shun death, is my advice.

B. Shun death at all risks? Well, at some!
True, I myself, Sir, though I scold
The cowardly, by no means come
Under reproof as overbold
-- I, who would have no end of brutes
Cut up alive to guess what suits
My case and saves my toe from shoots.
