Romeo and Juliet: Prince Recitation: Act 1, Scene 1 Lines 83-105

Line 83 Rebellious subjects, enemies to peace,
Line 84 Profaners of this neighbor-stained steel-
Line 85 Will they not hear? – What ho! You men, you beast,
Line 86 That quench the fire of your pernicious rage
Line 87 With purple fountains issuing from your viens:
Line 88 On pain of torture, from those bloody hands
Line 89 Throw your mistempered weapons to the ground,
Line 90 (ACCENT MARK) And hear the sentence of your mov├ęd prince.
Line 91 Three civil brawls bred of an airy word
Line 92 By thee, old Capulet, and Montague,
Line 93 Have thrice disturbed the quiet of our streets
Line 94 And made Verona’s ancient citizens
Line 95 Cast by their grave-beseeming ornaments
Line 96 To wield old partisans in hands as old,
Line 97 Cankered with peace, to part your cankered hate.
Line 98 If ever you disturb our streets again,
Line 99 Your lives shall pay the forfeit of the peace.
Line 100 For this time all the rest depart away.
Line 101 You, Capulet, shall go along with me,
Line 102 And, Montague, come you this afternoon
Line 103 To know our farther pleasure in this case,
Line 104 To old Free-town, our common judgment-place.
Line 105 Once more, on pain of death, all men depart.
