Markus Antonius. - Poem by RAVIKIRAN ARAKKAL

He was young and fullblooded,
Orator none of his time
Could match, it eas then
That was Caesar was stabbed
From behind by Brutus the crafty,
In secrecy which came into open.
Antonius then stood and gave
Speeches so fiery, that Rome
Stood burning, for the acts
Of the culprits behind the assassination.

For days did he make long
Speeches which Roman heard
With hearts throbbing in undulation
With the words he uttered gracefully.
It was then Cleopatra appeared,
To charm him so heartily,
With whom he left his country,
Leaving the leniage to the powerful
Throne fo Rome, in a ship
To Egypt to have the heavenly
Nuptials Cleopatra offered.

Thus ended the rise of a powerful
Orator to the throne of rome,
Never to be honored again.

How many are the Markuses
Of today who fall for wenches,
Forgetting their duties and nation?
