Simply Naisaiku

You were back biting?
Friend of Foe!
Et tu Brute
Friend of Foe!
You were back biting?
Et tu Brute

Have tried the strict 3-5-3 syllable count Naisaiku this time.

This fun form of  poetry celebrates its 60th week of The Naisaiku Challenge

Et tu Brute, then fall Caesar. I had the play Julius Caesar in my ICSE syllabus for English. :) Aren't 'Et tu Brute' (et tu bru-te) four syllables?

Thanks for taking the NaiSaiKu Challenge? With a a little historical twist...

Nicely thought out!

* I don't think it matters if it's three syllables or four, the point is that the poem works and it works well. The English word brute would be one syllable but the proper nane Brute would be two syllables.
