The unraveled nuance in a witty pun,
spurs the flair while friends have fun.
Yet, stand firm against the zeugma
as a friend exudes enigma.
But for Brutus’ keen-edged blade,
would Caesar’s breath gasp and fade?
If a king’s flame flicker and wane,
’tis because allies are bane.
To eschew excruciating backstab,
an enemy it is you sure must grab.
