On the Death of Gaius Julius Caesar

At one o’clock,
By Brutus’ hand,
and Cassius’ arm,
Senators gathered,
making mortal harm,
death and unrest,
gather and run,
Julius Caesar,
Rome’s consul cries,
The conqueror of Gaul,
has certainly died,
explanations are born,
in the eight hour,
To the Capitoline flee,
Tell us Stoic,
How has this murder,
Come to be?

–Richard Bryant
