Princely Education At Eastcheap - Poem by William F Dougherty
Doll Tearsheet, Boar's Head wench,
Encircled Falstaff, lessoned Hal
Plied new tricks picked up in French
And shocked yeoman with her clench
O goose-gown or knotty bench
As Hal sowed imperial
Oats. Doll Tearsheet, Boar's Heard wench,
Encircled Falstaff, lessoned Hal.
Poet's Notes about The Poem
is sinful portion of London. Boar's Head is a Tavern- with bordello
upstairs. Hence Doll Tear-sheet, etc. Hal becomes Henry V and
repudiates the bad company of his youth. [Encircling=legs- like the
repeated lines of a triolet.
