The Caesars' Mad Rule

I Truly how blessed are we not to bow to the barbaric chivalry Of emperors and kings’ in raging insanity Historical madness runs in the house of Caesars Considered great, ruler of lands and seas The house of Caesar wrought constant battles and Incestuous orgies Leprous Tiberius crucified thousands under his feet From simple paranoid fantasies, Separating himself, even from family Ruling from afar just as he pleased, To hell with the senate and their democracy- Maddened in fear A sweet young Caligula went to live With his uncle Tiberius in his 16th year, Ill of health from his day born Caligula gratified by habits of Tiberius adorned, Any evil or sin Caligula added to his very name Even delegating his horse to the senate, laughing with no shame- Oh and how his people loved him during his rising rule Adoring his gifts to them, laughing whilst To the senate he was so cruel.
