Sonnet 50

If slandered be thy name than be it so.
Rude jealousy takes aim at higher mark.
All men of decent standing will fair know
That knaves and fools such drivel do impart.
Black words so said or writ are easy paid,
And only suspect minds provide them worth,
And promulgating such works to whose aid?
And in whose craft does profit there gain berth?
That men of sense do know this be assured.
That truth trumps falsehood ever is the case.
In voice and action, lies will be demurred,
For truth, in time, can never be defaced.
And men of lies will ever meet defeat;
And men of virtue ever will be great.
