bread and circuses,

spectacle and savagery,

sweat, water and wine flowing:

mighty Caesar hopes to bank

the seditious fires that

smolder in the breasts

of his common citizens.

“divert my subjects’

thoughts. let them forget want, need,

hunger, war, taxes and plague.”

bounteous pleasures

will guard the mighty Caesar

‘til piteous cries

of hungry children waken

their fathers -- blood flows like wine.
