34 THE SHERMEN

Jesus sanguine cruentatus portans crucem versus Calvariam.
Simon Sereneus, Judei angariantes eum ut tolleret crucem,
Maria mater Jesu, Johannes apostolus intimans tune proxime
dampnacionem et transitum filii sui ad Calvariam, Veronica
tergens sanguinem et sudorem de facie Jesu cum flammeolo
in quo imprimitur facies Jesu, et alie mulieres lamentantes
Jesum.

1 KNIGHT ¶Peace, bairns and bachelors that bide here about.
Stir not once in this stead, but stand stone still,
Or by the lord that I believe on, I shall make you lout.
If ye spare not when I speak, your speech shall I spill
Smartly and soon.
For I am sent from Sir Pilate with pride,
To lead this lad our laws to abide;
He gets no better boon.
Therefore I command you on every side,
Upon pain of imprisonment no man appear
To support this traitor by time nor by tide,
Not one of this press,
Nor not once so hardily for to enquire,
But help me wholly, all that are here,
This caitiff's care to increase.
Therefore make room and rule you now right,
That we may with this wicked wight
Smartly wend on our way.
He has napped not in all this night,
And this day shall his death be dight;
Let's see who dare say nay.
Because tomorrow we provide
For our dear Sabbath day,
We will nought amiss be moved,
But mirth in all that ever men may.
