- The Fabulous Queen Of Egypt -

Woke up to a new life in Egypt
I was young not more than seventeen years
Adorned with gold and precious stones
My body was in the shroud of silk and jewels in my hair
I sat on a throne as a Queen

My name was Cleopatra, Queen of the Nile
During the day I lay on the silk cushions
and dozed in the shade of palm trees
Beautiful men and women kept flitting
around me with all sorts of temptations
Fed me all sorts of fruit and cold drinks

When evening came, it was time for romance
As Queen I had many to choose
My choice was of course:
"The greatest men of Rome"
Julius Caesar and Marcus Antonius
Why choose one when I can have two?

On a long journey down the Nile with
my love Julius Caesar, I was forced to
make a choice.
But a choice one must take...and the
choice was that I gave birth to a son
and Julius Caesar was the father

My love life was not popular
my husband was killed and I 
was no longer popular
It was no longer a life of happiness and joy
No, it was war and national mouming
and I would not live anymore

Hmmm...You kindly commented on my poem "End Up Where I Began" and now its my turn to return the favor. Cleopatra caugt my eye (as she does quite often), given the fact that I live and work in the same town in which she lived and died: Alexandria, Egypt. I find it fascinating (and cosmically coincidental) that we connected in this poignantly poetic circle of common historical interest. Viva la Cleopatra, your unique poetic gift and all traces of the long lost past. Peace, Love, Poetry, Terry

perhaps you lived by the nile, and clasped your bosom the asp, with half a smile you waited awhile, till the poison Cleo did clasp...
