brutus finds the truth
of the ego's struggle
upward..seemingly for each
new ladder rung..
to discover from the top
that temporary happiness
accompanied each rung
but eluded finally
on each and from the top..
there is the thought
that the discovery of futility
could have been discovered
nearer the bottom of one's
ladder of life...

Julius Caesar



But, ‘tis a common proof
That lowliness is young ambition’s ladder
Whereto the climber upward turns his face;
But when he once attains the upmost round
He then unto the ladder turns his back,
Looks in the clouds, scorning the base degrees
By which he did ascend.
