  • THE KNAVE

    I’ll drink your health, good Jaques, as a friend

    For greatly is thy jib-cut most admired.

    The Knave carouses to thy fortune, Treehorn.

    But hark! O venom! What betides my drink,

    That makes me swoon? The drink. I am poisoned.

    The treacherous White Russian in my hand.

    *He falls*

    And all the Knave e’er wanted was his rug

    As spoken of, which tied the room together.

    Look sharp! Darkness overtakes the Knave,

    Of blacker shade than cattle’s secret parts

    On moonless nights in Devonshire. I fall.

    It hath no bottom, not this taste of sin;

    I drop to see condition that I’m in.

    From The most excellent comedie and tragical romance of Two Gentlemen of Lebowski by Mr. Adam Bertocci.
