"...And so litle learning, so lewdly alowed:
What fault find ye herein but may be auowed?
But ye are so full of vertibilite,
And of frenetyke folabilite.
And of melancoly mutabilite.
That ye would coarte, and enforce me.
Nothing to write, but hay the gy of thre.
And I to suffre you lewdly toly,
Of me, with your language full of vilany..."
