The Image of Irelande, plate 5, by John Derricke, 1581
And though the pray recover'd be, yet are not all thinges ended:
For why: the souldiours doe pursue, the Rogues that have offended.
Who never cease till in the bloud, of these light fing;red theeves.
Their blades are bathd to teach them how, they after prowle for Beeves.
To see a souldiour toze a Karne, O Lord it is a wonder:
And eke what care he takth to part, the head from neck a sonder.
To see another leade a theefe, with such a lordly grace:
And for to marke how lothe the knave, doth follow in that case.
To see how trimme their glibbed heades, are borne by valiant men,
And garded with a rayall forte, of worthy souldiours then.
All these are thinges sufficient, to move a subjects minde:
To prase the souldiours, which reward, the woodkarne in their kinde.
