Is your body also
freshly painted?

excellent stanza - O let the saints bear in their mouth his praise, And a two-edged sword drawn in their hand, Therewith for to revenge the former days, Upon all nations, that their zeal withstand; To bind their kings in chains of iron strong, And manacle their nobles for their wrong.
