THERE HAS ALWAYS BEEN MUCH ADO about “The Ides of March.” We can pin that on William Shakespeare and his dramatic version of the offing of Julius Caesar. Also known as “Brutus and The Boys Giving the Shank to the Boss.” There have been plays, movies, books, a ballet and an opera about Julius going for a dirt nap. I’m also aware of a limerick about it all.
“Beware the Ides of March,”
Said the Sage from on top of the Arch.
But Caesar ignored him
And went to the Forum
And got stabbed right in the gazarch.
