Monologues for Men

WOL.

I do profess

You speak not like yourself, who ever yet

Have stood to charity, and display’d th’ effects

Of disposition gentle, and of wisdom

O’ertopping woman’s pow’r. Madam, you do me wrong,

I have no spleen against you, nor injustice

For you or any. How far I have proceeded,

Or how far further shall, is warranted

By a commission from the consistory,

Yea, the whole consistory of Rome. You charge me

That I have blown this coal. I do deny it.

The King is present: if it be known to him

That I gainsay my deed, how may he wound,

And worthily, my falsehood! yea, as much

As you have done my truth. If he know

That I am free of your report, he knows

I am not of your wrong. Therefore in him

It lies to cure me, and the cure is to

Remove these thoughts from you; the which before

His Highness shall speak in, I do beseech

You, gracious madam, to unthink your speaking

And to say so no more.
