Caligula - Poem by Joseph Narusiewicz

Some share darkness together
Black marble busts
Creations sheer like polished claws
Jeering mobs desiring blood
Burning night of lost lovers

Self-contempt hides under pride
The greedy concern with oneself
Disguise your dressed up elf
Chrome as silver as a mirror
The mirror of Dorian Gray

Unnatural affections
Violent delights with violent ends
Slit throat of Nero
The hour of the vile
The damned soul of Caligula
