And evere he rood the hyndreste of oure route.

from Geoffrey Chaucer – The Canterbury Tales (General Prologue) on Rap Genius

Meaning

The Miller leads the group of pilgrims out of town, and the Reeve is at the end of the line: these two men do not like each other. The Reeve is a carpenter, and later he is riled up by the Miller’s story about a cuckolded carpenter. The Miller, with his “thombe of gold,” has probably cheated the Reeve when weighing his corn.
