Location of Friars in Hell

‘Hold up thy tail thy Satanas’ said he
‘Show forth thine arse the friar see
Where is the nest of the friars in this place!’
And ere that half furlong way of space
Right so as bees come swarming from the hive,
Out of the devil’s arse began to drive
Twenty thousand friars in a route.
And throughout hell they swarmed all about
And came again as fast ad they may gone
And in his arse they crept in every John!

The Summoner’s Prologue
Geoffrey Chaucer

Looking to make sense of the nonsense in my head. Thinking this is a great place to start.
