Two households, both alyke in Dignity
In fairest Broma where they bred their sin,
From settled grudge break to new mutiny
Where ageing hands do fresh revenge begin.
From forth the fatal loins of these two foes
A tale of star-cross’d lovers ends in woe
Whose misadventured piteous overthrows
Did with their love bury Marcutio.
So with his raging curse he plagued them all:
The Flauntagues and Fiteulots alike.
A poet’s justice shall upon them fall,
Their guilts and fears consume them alive.
Now madness doth upon dark Broma bend;
Benvolio seeks to redeem his friend.
