In the Year 31 B.C.

Cleopatra;
The queen of the Nile,
the raven hair beauty
and the lover of
Marc Antony lived in
splendor and style.

Together they plotted
and planned the sea
battle of Actium,
hoping to overthrow
the Roman Empire
kingdom.

The sea battle raged on,
one by one the Queen's
ships were gone.

Cleopatra turned her ship
around, and set her purple
sails for Alexandra town.

Marc Antony followed in a desperate
pursuit, the battle was lost to the
Roman banner.
But Antony retreated
in a orderly manner.

Once they arrived in Alexandra,
they realized the end was near.
Marc Antony feel upon his sword,
and died in the arms Cleopatra,
while she shed an ocean of tears.

Now that her lover was gone
and all was lost,
she had only one more task…
to kiss a deadly asp.

Lovers for ever at last...
Marc Antony and Cleopatra.
