With apologies to Billy the Shake:
Enter ALDERMAN BURKE, with persons bearing a coffin
Great mayor, within this coffin I present
Thy buried fear: herein all breathless lies
The mightiest of thy greatest enemies,
Richard of Daley, by me hither brought.
Burke, I thank thee not; for thou hast wrought
A deed of slander with thy fatal hand
Upon my head and all this famous land.
From your own mouth, my lord, did I this deed.
They love not poison that do poison need,
Nor do I thee: though I did wish him dead,
I hate the murderer, love him murdered.
The guilt of conscience take thou for thy labour,
But neither my good word nor princely favour:
With Karl Rove go wander through shades of night,
And never show thy head by day nor light.
