School's Out

Family Portrait

Prunes among the purple breasts,
Tastier than poisoned figs,
Mean that Augustus Caesar rests,
Intestines cleaner than his pigs.

His brooding wife still lurks nearby
Tiberius, her favorite son,
And ladles from her own supply
Some arsenic for everyone.

This happy family reposes
Power beneath an Orphic bower,
Until picked off by deadly roses
So Little Boots can come to power.
