The Web: Bastards

author unknown

CORV. Has he children?
MOSCA. Bastards,

Some dozen or more that he begot on beggars,
Gypsies, and Jews, and black-moors, when he was drunk.
Knew you not that, sir? 'Tis the common fable.
The dwarf, the fool, the eunuch are all his.
He's the true father of his family
In all, save me, but he has given 'em nothing.
