Ô diable!

CONSTABLE

By the devil!

ORLÉANS

Ô seigneur! Le jour est perdu, tout est perdu!

ORLÉANS

By God! We've lost, we've lost everything!

DAUPHIN

Mort de ma vie, all is confounded, all! Reproach and everlasting shame Sits mocking in our plumes.

DAUPHIN

By death, everything is destroyed, everything! Blame and eternal shame sit in the feathers on our helmets, mocking us.

A short alarum

Ô méchante Fortune! Do not run away.

Oh cruel Fortune! Do not run away.

CONSTABLE

Why, all our ranks are broke.

CONSTABLE

But our ranks have all been broken.

DAUPHIN

O perdurable shame! Let’s stab ourselves.Be these the wretches that we played at dice for?

DAUPHIN

Oh eternal shame! Let's stab ourselves. Are these the miserable men we gambled for?

ORLÉANS

Is this the king we sent to for his ransom?

ORLÉANS

Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adi

BOURBON

Shame, and eternal shame, nothing but shame! Let us die. In 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 contaminate.

BOURBON

Disorder, that hath spoiled us, friend us now.Let us on heaps go offer up our lives.

CONSTABLE

ORLÉANS

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

ORLÉANS

BOURBON

The devil take order now! I’ll to the throng.Let life be short, else shame will be too long.
