MURDER UPON MURDER
In Hounsdich were together tane, Selling the coat in the same lane. O murder, &c.
17   With the new suit vpon his back,
and all things else beside, The queane the hat of Master Holt,
which they had murdered, So vnto Newgate were they sent, Confest all this, and doe repent. O murder, &c.
18   Wishing all men when as they walke
to haue a speciall care, And not to go vnarm'd, or late,
but sword or truncheon weare, Had they done so Sherwood doth say, He had not ventred them to slay. O murder, &c,
19   Within three quarters of a yeare,
these murders they haue done, And maim'd and spoiled many a one,
by their confession: Such deadly blowes he did them giue, Twas strange that after they should liue. O murder, &c.
20   For these bad facts he now doth dye,
iust iudgement for his meede, All such ill liuers grant they may,
no worse nor better speed, So shall England from crying sinne, Be euer freed, Gods mercy winne. For murder lust and murder,
is the foule sinke of sinne.
Printed at London for T. Langley,
and are to be sold by Thomas Lambert
in Smithfield, neare to the Hospitall
gate.
