When they had sworn to this advised doom, (1850)

They did conclude to bear dead Lucrece thence; (1851)

To show her bleeding body thorough Rome, (1852)

And so to publish Tarquin's foul offence: (1853)

Which being done with speedy diligence,
The Romans plausibly did give consent (1855)

To Tarquin's everlasting banishment.
