Marc Anthony, Caesar’s friend and one of the assassins, speaks.

Anthony:
Friends, Romans, countrymen, lend me your ears;
I come to bury Caesar, not to praise him.


Groundling 1:
You don’t even have a shovel. How you going to bury him?


Groundling 2:
You ain’t done a day of digging in your life, ya toff!


Anthony:
The evil that men do lives after them;
The good is oft interred with their bones;


Groundling 1:
Entered who with his bone ?


Groundling 2.
Aye, havin’ at that Egypitian tart, weren’t he?


Anthony:
So let it be with Caesar. The noble Brutus
Hath told you Caesar was ambitious:


Groundling 1:
He et, too, I heard, did Brutus.


Anthony
If it were so, it was a grievous fault.
And grievously hath Caesar answer'd it.


Groundling 2
He hasn’t answered for anything has he? Dead as doornail, he is. Go ahead, poke him with a stick. Dead. Dead. Dead.


Anthony
Here, under leave of Brutus and the rest—


Groundling 1,
What leafs? There ain’t no leafs.


Groundling 2
Brutus has leafs? And he ain’t even sharing.


Anthony
For Brutus is an honourable man;
So are they all, all honourable men—


Groundling 1
Bloody poms, aren’t they. Useless.


Groundling 2
Not a shovel among the lot. How you going to bury him?


Anthony
Oh, never mind.

"This is not an authentic Christopher Moore novel. I downloaded a sample from Amazon, and its the text of Fool where some words have been replaced with synonyms. Goodreads should remove this from their listings."
