Roman Raspberries

The Romans gave us
aqueducts, mosaics and the Colosseum,
and fragments of pottery,
that can be found in museums.
Julius Caesar was an ill-mannered swine,
he threw folk to the lions,
and got drunk on wine.

The roman soldiers
were sticklers for order,
they built very straight roads
and a wall on the border.

They were big fans of summer fruits,
but sartorially they
preferred sandals to boots,
raspberries were their favourite food,
but they didn't blow them,
'cos that would be rude!
