I think Shakespeare was just checking his audience was awake and listening whilst he dropped them a hint of what was to follow. The speaker is the infamous Richard 3rd and he had an axe to grind that made Brexit look like a bugs bunny cartoon. Richard would later get knocked off his horse on the battle field. "my Kingdom for a horse" he cried, but then, like now, there were no buyers for the united "Kingdom"and he was hacked to death for being a thoroughly nasty and manipulative little thug!
Greetings from Canada Daniel! Those are really exquisite pictures! How lovely paradise looks from up here in BC as the Canadian winter gathers darkly on the horizon
