Passage

Comprehension:

Read the given passage and answer the questions that follow

And the creature run from the cur?

There thou mightst behold the great image of authority: a dog obeyed in office. -

Thou rascal beadle, hold thy bloody hand!

Why dost thou lash that whore? Strip thine own back

Thou hotly lust s-t to use her in that kind

For which thou whipp՚st her. The usurer hangs the cozener.

Through tatter՚d clothes small vices do appear;

Robes and furred gowns hide all. Plate sin with gold,

And the strong Lance of justice hurtless breaks;

Arm it in rats, a pigmy՚s straw doth pierce it.
