Caesar, a general, a warrior and a strategist who loved creativity.
Caesar


“Beware the ides of March,” said the soothsayer.
Calpurnia, tried her best to evade the impending danger,
dissuading Julius Caesar of the mighty Roman Empire,
whom the crowds worshiped as their own true sire,
from going to the Capitol where the “lusty Romans” planned his fall.
Their jealousy, the green eyed monster however, couldn't be stalled.

He died the way he desired, like a valiant that never tasted
death but once, a warrior murdered by the degenerated.
We admire him his bold, quick, conclusive wars, victories,
his convincing and confident declaration “veni, vichi, vidi.”

His quotable quotes, qualities and clever strategies
made him extraordinary, winning overall sympathy.
His fall was not with a whimper but with passion acute
his last words to the betrayer being “et too brute”?

Caesar’s life shows that everyone, low or lofty, great or humble
is a puppet on the string of events that cause to rise or tumble.
In the cold, cruel war for power, property and unlimited ambition,
friendship, love and loyalty never stand a chance for recognition.
