Claudius Caesar … who would have known?!

1221511385.656720

Cornerstone of Rome
…who would have known

Door mouse
of the house of Nobles
In the back ground stood he
bowed low

Yet
Fated well, this delicate form
by Sisters Three
The gods nodding in affirmation
when with Laurel Wreath
crowned is he

Cripple made king
Frailty  his Salvation
Affliction paved his path
to immortal initiation

Failed historian
turned ruler
of an Empire
To rule
never once
being his desire

If
truly
the gods
laugh at our
plans

At poor Claudius
surely they laughed
Heads held in their hands
