The Same. Another Room.
How now, friend Eros!
There’s strange news come, sir.
Cæsar and Lepidus have made wars upon Pompey.
This is old: what is the success?
Cæsar, having made use of him in the wars ’gainst Pompey, presently denied him rivality, would not let him partake in the glory of the action; and not resting here, accuses him of letters he had formerly wrote to Pompey; upon his own appeal, seizes him: so the poor third is up, till death enlarge his confine.
Then, world, thou hast a pair of chaps, no more;
And throw between them all the food thou hast,
They’ll grind the one the other. Where’s Antony?
He’s walking in the garden—thus: and spurns
The rush that lies before him; cries, ‘Fool, Lepidus!’
And threats the throat of that his officer
That murder’d Pompey.
Our great navy’s rigg’d.
For Italy and Cæsar. More, Domitius;
My lord desires you presently: my news
I might have told hereafter.
’Twill be naught;
But let it be. Bring me to Antony.
