K. Lear, iii. 4

William Shakespeare (1564–1616)
 
.. POOR 1 naked wretches, wheresoe’er you are
That bide the pelting of this pitiless storm,
How shall your houseless heads and unfed sides,
Your loop’d and window’d raggedness, defend you
From seasons such as these?… Take physic, pomp;        5
Expose thyself to feel what wretches feel;
That thou may’st shake the superflux to them,
And show the heav’ns more just.
 
Note 1. Shakespeare. ‘K. Lear’, iii. 4. [back]
