Proud, fierce and focused
A Roman was most envied

Engineers of renown
Roads built to tame a world
Bridges spanning any obstacle
Order out of chaos
A hard life led by hard men

They were great adapters
You may have discovered it
The Romans made it better
There armies were ferocious
Their buildings majestic

Nothing could stand in their way
Except themselves
Their decadence renowned
Destroyed their strength
One day it fell to the ground

The glory of Rome no more
Hard times less their empire
The northerners ruled Rome
Their empire had no home
This place once known as Rome
