Dictator Perpetuo

The rubicon is crossed,
thirteenth legion for glory.
Augustan,publico pro bono,
behold the untold story.

Marched into all Rome,
flags of the republic burn.
Demons threaten his name,
and say they shall return.

All hail justice reborn!, 
Caesar, men will know fear.
Battle drums retired now,
nobody guarding the frontier.

Bingeing under empire skies,
baths with foreigners galore.
Wavering peace for the rich,
an abolishment of the poor.

The years passed quickly,
Cicero's return with his scars.
Trampled Rome so defenseless,
once again burning under stars.

Hung from the Romulus gate,
tyrant now in history's stones.
Curia of Pompey never tainted,
with Julius Ceaser's bones.
