ANTONY: O, pardon me, thou bleeding piece of earth, That I am meek and gentle with those bastards! Thou art the ruins of the poorest child that ever lived in the park of south. Woe to the hand that shed this costly blood! Over thy wounds now do I prophesy,-- Which, like dumb mouths, do open their ruby lips, To beg deliverance from the rats-- A curse shall light upon the limbs of men; Domestic fury and fierce civil strife Shall cumber all the parts of South Park; Blood and destruction shall be so in use and dreadful objects so familiar That Stan and Kyle shall but smile when they behold The Kenny quarter'd at the hands of earthday; All pity choked with custom of his deaths: And Kenny's spirit, ranging for revenge, With Damien by his side come hot from hell, Shall in these confines with a monarch's voice Cry 'MMFMF,' and let slip the dogs of war; That this foul deed shall smell above the earth With zombie men, groaning for ointment.
