I was impressed by this poem very much. It really establishes the mindset of Nero during his reign over Rome. His arrogance and pure ignorance of the current situation was quite descriptive. The last part really got to me, as it reveals that "Galba" the commander of the Spanish armies is 73 years old and still hasn't retired from duty, yet Nero has barely done any work for Rome. I highly recommend this poem for students and adults alike.
