Cleopatra In Disguise

You, you lady
With a posture
Of a whore,
Abhor the whole
World and repulsed
The men, with your
Candor, Antony
Oh the great Antony
With your lure
He was befall
Vindictive Cleopatra
thousand ships have
come within reach
of Egypt’s dock
to witness your
beauty, thy fetid beauty
In your cup
Men sips the poison
Of an asp, a
Poignant poison
that held
them in your
Cleopatra dear,
Why did you
End thy life?
Isn’t it beautiful?
with such a charm
The world, the men
You have turned
Spite, with malevolence
The universe demise.

poet Alfred Lord Tennyson

It little profits that an idle king,
By this still hearth, among these barren crags,
Match'd with an aged wife, I mete and dole
Unequal laws unto a savage race,
