Romeo and Juliet Quote Help

posted by .

Could someone please help me with this quote I read the rest of act 2 today and I was wondering what this quote means:

Mercutio: " Alas poor Romeo, he is already dead: stabbed with a white wench's black eye; run through the ear with a love song; the very pin of his heart cleft with the blind bowboy's butt shaft; and is he a man to encounter Tybalt?
