Egyptian goddess impetuous and pompous Cleopatra’s conquests at history’s bequests wielded a propensity for dramatic intensity She snared the great Marc Antony lured him into salacious surreality of whirlwind amorous insanity their thirst for world domination stirred a most legendary seduction concocted in the heat of passion From a cesspool of politics leveraging exponential cunning and beguiling struggles in a dance of supremacy conniving betrayals with godlike fury their superpower alliance meeting all-consuming defiance Their legendary games fanatical in the end proving most problematical honor deceit and lies tragic loyalties and turmoil climactic In the end love a destructive factor with more than one malefactor hearts hopelessly infatuated now freed and elated finally devoid of grief and strife bound to reunite in the afterlife AP: 3rd place 2020 Submitted on June 9, 2020 to contest BRIAN'S SELECT A sponsored by BRIAN STRAND Originally posted on June 7, 2020

This is written in the way of the Old Masters, Old Mistress. I mean this in the kindest and absolutely most respectful and reverent way, my poetic genius friend.
