Depicting the exchange between Death and the Bishop, this illustration is associated traditionally with the text

shown below.



Death to the Bishop:

Your worthiness has been distorted,

Mr Bishop, wise and well learned.

I will pull you into the dance,

You cannot flee from Death.


The Bishop:

I have been very highly esteemed,

While I lived, in my bshop's office.

Now the freaks are pulling me,

To their dance like a monkey.
