The American Caesar

     I haven’t posted anything too political for a while now. So let’s get on with the show..

     I hope you like it, and whatever your interpretation(s) may be, I would be interested in hearing.

Jake.

The American Caesar

And the king shall bow

before the commoners

as his reign comes down

in ruin.

*

Pleading for mercy

not for act or deed,

but for ignorance

of the uprising brewin’.

*

His court he will damn

and the ministers name

for the king and the queen

know not any shame.

*

And still arrogant to the end

he’ll refute all, but small blames.

And fiddle to the end

and laugh at the flames.

  1. Caesar is the dog whisperer what are you talking about? I already named him after my favorite pepperidge farm cookies, we had the odd dish Zions the odd dish shuns while you were taking another Rip Van Winkle nap

  2. Nero, among the worst. Marcus Aurelius, the noblest Roman of all.

    • Oh, andI thought the most noble to be Neiman-Marcus Aurelius. But you are right about the worst, I agree with you onNero Wolfe. (Sorry that’s the best I can do so early in the morning) lol
