Quandary Resolution 5503
canker, set the Thames on fire, regnant, dulcify
Though he set the River Thames on fire, though poets sing his praises, yet no deeds of his can justify nor words can dulcify his sickly presence on the throne; only when the pretender be deposed, and Richard restored regnant to his lawful place will the canker on the body politic be cured.
