	[Enter Constable, ORLEANS, BOURBON, DAUPHIN, and RAMBURES]

Constable: O diable!

ORLEANS: O seigneur! le jour est perdu, tout est perdu!

DAUPHIN: Mort de ma vie! all is confounded, all!
	Reproach and everlasting shame
	Sits mocking in our plumes. O merchante fortune!
	Do not run away.

	[A short alarum]

Constable:                   Why, all our ranks are broke.

DAUPHIN: O perdurable shame! let's stab ourselves.
	Be these the wretches that we play'd at dice for?

ORLEANS: Is this the king we sent to for his ransom?

BOURBON: Shame and eternal shame, nothing but shame!
	Let us die in honour: once more back again;
	And he that will not follow Bourbon now,
	Let him go hence, and with his cap in hand,
	Like a base pander, hold the chamber-door
	Whilst by a slave, no gentler than my dog,
	His fairest daughter is contaminated.

Constable: Disorder, that hath spoil'd us, friend us now!
	Let us on heaps go offer up our lives.

ORLEANS: We are enow yet living in the field
	To smother up the English in our throngs,
	If any order might be thought upon.

BOURBON: The devil take order now! I'll to the throng:
	Let life be short; else shame will be too long.

	[Exeunt]




	KING HENRY V
