A LETTER FROM BRUTUS~by John Patrick Boutilier


 

 

A LETTER FROM BRUTUS

I write to ask you discontinue course
Honour the oath you have sworn
Rome is not yours to be taken by force
Should you persist, then I must warn

You’ll not take our freedoms without a fight
We will resist you tooth and nail
We’re frightened not by your armies and might
Through righteous cause we will prevail

You have forgotten it is you who serve
It is we the people who rule
The constitution we’re bound to preserve
If need be, with our lives as tool

Enemies, whether foreign or domestic
Need know we take our oath to heart
We shall protect our blessed republic
From this honour never depart

Thus, I beg thee, Caesar, as dearest friend
Come not as tyrant into Rome
Seek not a crown, put such effort to end
Remember this too is you home
