Lost eagles of Roman army « IMPERIUM ROMANUM

Empires rise and fall

Some leave great legacies

Others not much at all

The Romans brought straight roads

An alphabet and laws

While the British exported cricket

And oblong-shaped balls

The English tongue too they spread round

Though dialects many – now abound

Lift or elevator?

Barbeque or braai?

By a common tongue divided

I don’t know why

Empires now are so passe

Maybe we should just keep it that way
