lend me your ears
as the history now
before your eyes clears;
the classic tale is a portrayal
of great intrigue and betrayal
but just what went on - on Ides of March?

a diplomatic game, démarche:
senate's dominoes cascade
which healed the land
through sharp peaked shards ...
Oh? ... Was it really so?
For theatre it was, an ominous
play the going on; ardent statesman
did not get flayed, no body burned,
no grave's displayed -
as only just in recent year
with a clap, a gasp and cheer -
accounts in Caymans have been found
with growing interest, to gold bound,
from 44 BC: even archaeologists agree
that surely we do need to mention
this is a substantial pension
for its rightful appointee!
while senators were hunted down
upheaval gave the way to Crown;
''Can't have one without the other''
Augustus pondered - and so rather
took what he thought suits him best:
a laurel-leaf ~ it does not become
to an immortal wraith; a God -
