ASTROLOGER. Peer not for peril! AGRIPPINA. Peril! His or mine? ASTROLOGER. Thine then. AGRIPPINA. I will know all, however dark.  Finish what did so splendidly begin. ASTROLOGER. Nero shall reign, but he shall kill his mother. AGRIPPINA. Kill me, but reign! EnterSENECA SENECA. The trumpet summoned me,  And I am here. AGRIPPINA. Seneca! Speak it low!  Caesar is dead! Nero shall climb the throne. SENECA. I will not ask the manner of his death.  In studious ease I have protested much  Against the violent taking of a life.  But lost in action I perceive at last  That they who stand so high can falter not,  But live beyond the reaches of our blame;  That public good excuses private guile. AGRIPPINA. You, Xenophon and Burrus, stand with me. EnterBURRUS,right. He salutes the corse ofCLAUDIUS BURRUS. Obedient to the trumpet-call I come. AGRIPPINA. Say, Burrus, quickly say, how stands our cause  With the Praetorians who unmake and make Emperors? BURRUS. The Praetorians are staunch,  And they are marching now upon the Palace. AGRIPPINA. Will they have Nero? BURRUS. Yes, and double pay.  There is a murmuring minority  Who toss about the name Britannicus.  These may be feared; let Nero scatter gold  There where dissension rises—it will cease.  Their signal when they shall surround the Palace,  The gleam of my unsheathed sword to the dawn. AGRIPPINA. Stand there until I have from him the sign,  Then let thy sword gleam upward to the dawn.  [Turning and pointing to body ofCLAUDIUS.  That is my work! Also, I must betroth  Nero unto the young Octavia,  And with the dead man's daughter mate my son.  This marriage sets him firmer on the throne,  And foils the party of Britannicus.  [ToBURRUS.] You for the army answerable stand.  [ToSENECA.] And, Seneca, I have entrusted Nero's mind  To you, to point an eaglet to the sun.  Nero? What does he? SENECA. Nero knows not yet  That Claudius is dead. Rome hath not slept,  But to the torch-lit circus all have run  To see him victor in a chariot race,  Whence he is now returning. A night race  By burning torches is his newest whim. AGRIPPINA. A torch-lit race! And yet why not? My child
