	[Enter CINNA the poet]

CINNA THE POET: I dreamt to-night that I did feast with Caesar,
	And things unlucky charge my fantasy:
	I have no will to wander forth of doors,
	Yet something leads me forth.

	[Enter Citizens]

First Citizen: What is your name?

Second Citizen: Whither are you going?

Third Citizen: Where do you dwell?

Fourth Citizen: Are you a married man or a bachelor?

Second Citizen: Answer every man directly.

First Citizen: Ay, and briefly.

Fourth Citizen: Ay, and wisely.

Third Citizen: Ay, and truly, you were best.

CINNA THE POET: What is my name? Whither am I going? Where do I
	dwell? Am I a married man or a bachelor? Then, to
	answer every man directly and briefly, wisely and
	truly: wisely I say, I am a bachelor.

Second Citizen: That's as much as to say, they are fools that marry:
	you'll bear me a bang for that, I fear. Proceed; directly.

CINNA THE POET: Directly, I am going to Caesar's funeral.

First Citizen: As a friend or an enemy?

CINNA THE POET: As a friend.

Second Citizen: That matter is answered directly.

Fourth Citizen: For your dwelling,--briefly.

CINNA THE POET: Briefly, I dwell by the Capitol.

Third Citizen: Your name, sir, truly.

CINNA THE POET: Truly, my name is Cinna.

First Citizen: Tear him to pieces; he's a conspirator.

CINNA THE POET: I am Cinna the poet, I am Cinna the poet.

Fourth Citizen: Tear him for his bad verses, tear him for his bad verses.

CINNA THE POET: I am not Cinna the conspirator.

Fourth Citizen: It is no matter, his name's Cinna; pluck but his
	name out of his heart, and turn him going.

Third Citizen: Tear him, tear him! Come, brands ho! fire-brands:
	to Brutus', to Cassius'; burn all: some to Decius'
	house, and some to Casca's; some to Ligarius': away, go!

	[Exeunt]
