Thou coward, art thou bragging to the stars,
Telling the bushes that thou look’st for wars,
And wilt not come? Come, recreant; come, thou child;
I’ll whip thee with a rod: he is defiled
That draws a sword on thee.

– William Shakespeare

A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Act 3, Scene 2. Puck uses his fairy abilities to impersonate Lysander. Transforming his voice to that of the Athenian, he shouts out insults to Demetrius. Calling Demetrius a coward and child, he challenges him to fight Lysander.
