Friends, anarchists, cypherpunks, lend me your ears;
I come to bury Mongo, not to praise him.
The evil that men do lives after them;
The good is oft interred with their bones;
So let it be with Mong. The noble Jamesd
Hath told you Mongo was ambitious:
If it were so, it was a greasy fault,
And greasily hath Mongo answer’d it.
Here, under leave of jamesd and the rest–
For jamesd is an honourable man;
So are they all, all honourable men–
Come I to speak in Mongo’s funeral.
He was my friend, faithful and just to me:
But Jimmy D says he was ambitious;
And D is an honourable man.
He hath brought many captives home to Wome
Whose ransoms did the general coffers fill:
Did this in Mongo seem ambitious?
When that the poor have cried, Mong hath wept:
Ambition should be made of sterner stuff:
Yet DeeDee says he was ambitious;
And Dildo is an honourable man.
You all did see that on the Lupercal
I thrice presented him a kingly crown,
Which he did thrice refuse: was this ambition?
Yet Dogshit says he was ambitious;
And, sure, he is an honourable man.
I speak not to disprove what jamesD spoke,
But here I am to speak what I do know.
You all did love him once, not without cause:
What cause withholds you then, to mourn for him?
O judgment! thou art fled to brutish beasts,
And men have lost their REASON. Bear with me;
My heart is in the coffin there with Mong,
And I must pause till it come back to me.
