Like Mom, Like Son

Agrippina, Roman Empress,
By marriage to Claudius who
By flirtation she did impress.
By strategy her power grew.
From a previous marriage, she
Brought her son, Nero, to the throne.
She poisoned Claudius and he
Died, but she could not rule alone.
She maneuvered Nero, her son,
Into the open ruler spot,
Thinking she still would be the one
Really in power as she'd sought.

Nero had other plans for sure,
And had his servants murder her.
