MURTHER UNMASKED
Outmatcht this Deed cannot, Except with Powder-plot^ Which ne're will be forgot till the last Iudgement.
11    Of grace he had no touch
in his heart, in his heart, But still did fauour much
tK Arminian Faction: And did his God forsake, Which did him ouertake, And drencht him in the Lake
of deepe destruction.
12   His Secretary then
seeing well, seeing well Their damned plots made plain
to both their ruines: Himselfe kil'd in the night, With knife made sharpe & bright So gaue the diuell his right
by his despayring.
13   You Politians all,
carefully, carefully, Be warn'd1 by Barnviles fall
midst his fowle actions: See you no mischiefes weaue, That will your selues deceiue, And soules of blisse bereaue
past all redemption.
14   And let each English heart
speedily, speedily, From Poperie depart as from fell poyson.
1 Text war'nd.
