Talk no more of the lucky escape of the head
From a flint so unhappily thrown;

Hold, there is forty ducats. Let me have
A dram of poison, such soon-speeding gear
As will disperse itself through all the veins
That the life-weary taker may fall dead,

As violently as hasty powder fired
Doth hurry from the fatal cannon's womb.

but if it happed to light within their chawes or mouth,
especially if it come from a man that is fasting, it is present
death.
