English term or phrase: You common cry of curs whose breath I hate
I need a translation of an excerpt from the Shakespeare Play "Coriolanus"

You common cry of curs
whose breath I hate
as reek o' the rotten fens,
whose loves I prize
as the dead carcasses of unburied men
that do corrupt my air!

you common cry of curs whose breath i hate
I gemene kobbel hunde, jeres ånde hader jeg


Explanation:
A quick attempt:

I gemene kobbel hunde,
jeres ånde hader jeg
som stanken fra de rådne sumpe,
jeres troskab skatter jeg
som døde menneskers endnu ubegravede ådsler,
der min luft forpester!
