Weekend Writing Prompt 27 – Life 

Ancient Egypt, who knew?

Sailing the Nile

All the while

She adjusts her jewels

While being cruel

To the oarsmen. . .

Cleopatra the queen

She’s mostly seen

With eyes abound

By charcoal rounds

Sporting her crown

She is renowned. . .

Widowed was she

Married Antony

They ran away at sea. . .

Then her deception 

Was Tony’s fatal inception

Did she order the task(it)

An asp in a basket – 

Should we even ask it?

Results were a casket. . .

Now I’ve  been schooled

Octavian ruled.

One of Shakespeare’s takes on life.
