Ha! I have his head!

But for what price?

My head too should be the fee,

For I am utterly undone.

Oh cruel fate!

How you have Verona for its stage!

And I am the puppet in this play of misfortunes.

I could run and hide to some faraway place-

my life shrouded in solitude and shame..

Oh the coward I have become!

T'will do me no good,

T'is a cowards choice.

For troubles prey those who dare not to face them.

I must stay;

My death is already mark'd upon me,

but it is better to die with my honour than to be the quivering fool.

And now by the labour of my bloody hands,

The innocent villian Mercutio lays dying,

by the tip of my sword did pirce the flesh of the unworthy martyr.

I shall remain with what little honour I have,

There is no escape-

For I am one already dead.
