Geoffrey Chaucer: Declamation Honoring Sir William Thatcher
Good People: I missed my introduction!
But please, please, I pray you -- hear it now:
For I would lay rest the grace in my tongue and speak plainly.
Days like these are far too rare to cheapen with heavy-handed words.
And so, I'm afraid without any ado whatsoever -- (Excuse me, my lord) --
Here he is! One of your own!
Born a stone's throw from this very stadium --
And here before you now --
The son of John Thatcher --
Sir William Thatcher!!!
