CASSIUS, a cunning character in Shakespearean literature masterpiece, Julius Caesar, once said in reference to King Caesar: “And this man has now become a god, and Cassius is, a wretched creature and must bend his body, if Caesar carelessly, but nod on him.
“He had a fever when he was in Spain, and when the fit was on him, I did mark how he did shake: ‘tis true, this god did shake; His coward lips did from their colour fly, and that same eye whose bend doth awe the world did lose his lustre:
“I did hear him groan. Ay, and that tongue of his that bade the Romans, mark him and write his speeches in their books, alas, it cried ‘Give me some drink, Tintinius,’.
“As a sick girl, Ye gods, it doth amaze me. A man of such a feeble temper should so get the start of the majestic world and bear the palm alone . . .’
Blabber could not help, but reminisce about these lines after learning about how this other respected man who was in charge of this other major service provider in our beautiful city whimpered while he was the guest of the State recently.
We have always regarded him highly and never imagined at one point seeing him with tears rolling down his cheeks.
This is the class we all think are always happy and merrymaking, simply because they appear to have all that they need.
Alas, the rich and the revered cry as well!
Word reaching Yours Truly is that he was just uncontrollable the whole night after being thrown behind bars for the criminal charges he is facing.
Yes, that tongue, which used to hurl instructions to juniors at work, cried all night!
Men and women who are tasked with keeping guests to the State had to spent the night trying to console him and imparting words of advice and comfort as he uncontrollably wept all night.
Recently, Blabber made it clear that being a gentle private medical practitioner that we have always known him to be, let alone his strong Christian background, none of us back then had ever imagined seeing the animal in him.
In recent times, Yours Truly was actually failing to come to terms with the power hungry sex pest that he has suddenly turned out to be.
Blabber could not believe his ears when it first came out that this guy was stopping at nothing in quenching his sexual and financial appetite.
Stories like that of a young female intern who recently was offered a job before she even completed her studies back at college as a way of thanking her for her exploits in the bedroom, sounded too true to believe.
Blabber will be following with keen interest how this drama unfolds to its logical conclusion.
I rest my case!
