The Killing of Julius Caesar

I have taken the time of Julius Caesar and the happening on March 15, 44 BC and made a version of my own in my inimitable way. The interesting thing to me is that today we have similar things going on in a variety of ways....oh well...enjoy...

Ides of March

A man's zenith almost reached
In Rome blistering sun shines down
Men stride through the square
In togas white


Mark Anthony towers above
Other senators
In deeds and mind
Friend of Caesar
Now in decline

"Where goest thee"
He asked of Brutus Cassius too
When on the steps of auditorium
It was March 15
Ides of March had begun

Power hungry men

Dictator of all Caesar had become
Chosen so by everyone
Mighty battles had he won
Rome jubilant

Yet in cracks and crevices
Of evil minds
Men sought for power hungry grew
Jealousy reared its ugly head
So often it will do

Finding no other place to go
But striking out
It happens all the time

Plotting

Plotted they did so cleverly
Persuaded others of its rightness
Killing the only answer
Getting rid of the dictator

Not so easy nowadays!!!!

A proud republic came to be
Out of the ashes of dictatorship
Yet still in hands of few did lay
Moral virtue upstanding ways


A laugh a minute I would say
Just as it is today....

Pure white toga....

Come to where another is
Impossible it seems
Two sides to man like everything
One shining with goodness bright
Other in darkness crawls

Friends fellow wikinuters
Lend me your ears
I come to bury Caesar
To laud him for his good deeds
With kind heart and coronet


Perhaps he had a dark side too
Just like we do
All of us
But so what
For a moment in time
We on this planet dwell
Then off we are
A minute spot on a policeman's uniform
Or pure white toga

Take your pick......

Lots of connections made here. I rather enjoyed Kind Hearts and Coronets when I saw it.

Before the darkness envelopes us at times let us do all the good! What we are later we cannot perceive or guarantee - after all we react to circumstances. Great presentation, Carolina - siva

Of all Caesar's conspirators, can we say Brutus is the least to blame or punish for his motive of helpng slay Caesar because of his fear that Rome would be in great peril if Caesar would be installed king and not for any other reason? Just asking opinions.

Brutus seems to have been an honourable man misled by those who wanted to use him.
