Brutus spoke in prose not blank verse. This is the everyday language that the common people spoke in. By speaking this way Brutus is saying “Hey, I’m one of you."
Brutus talks about how he loved Caesar, but how he loved Rome more. He tries to get emotions out of the audience, as well. He asks them if they would rather have Caesar ruling over them and make them slaves, or they could have Caesar die and they could be free. This tended to help persuade the people of Rome to stand with Brutus.
If Caesar had lived, he would have enslaved every Roman citizen by taking over power and becoming a dictator. Brutus tries to justify him killing Caesar by stating that.
