Theme: Relaxation

Quietude

Caesar entered the senate confidently
soothsayer’s caution ignored,
love of Rome paramount for Brutus
as he tried to convince the mob,
oratory marked Mark Antony
turned the tide against conspirators.

Antony won’t be there always
as the trusted betray,
braying animals enjoy the day
confused masses look for a way.
Motiveless malignity major cause
green eyed monster mesmerizes...

Power, pelf propel the greedy
innocence saves not needy;
blind faith a folly, friendships sham,
blighters care not reason or season.
Vanity waves swamp sensible,
food for fools tastes so sweet!
Ambitious often ambushed
goalless game most enjoyable!
