Romeo. Come hither, man. I check out that thou art poor:Hold, there is fourty ducats: let me haveA plays of poison, together soon-speeding gearAs will disperse itself through all the veinsThat the life-weary taker may fall deadAnd that the trunk may be discharged that breathAs violently together hasty flour firedDoth hurry native the deadly cannon\"s womb.

Apothecary. such mortal drugs i have; yet Mantua\"s lawIs death to any kind of he that utters them.



Romeo. art thou therefore bare and also full that wretchedness,And fear\"st to die? famine is in her cheeks,Need and also oppression starveth in thine eyes,Contempt and beggary hangs upon her back;The human being is no thy friend nor the world\"s law;The people affords no legislation to make thee rich;Then be no poor, yet break it, and take this.

Apothecary. my poverty, but not mine will, consents.



Romeo. ns pay thy poverty, and not your will.
