Another fantasy poem or battle poem that is actually an allegory. The theme is that of the Roman legions — that an army can only win when its leaders act together for the common good. Rome conquered many lands because those they fought could not band together. Their hatred for each other surpassed the need to meet the Roman legions, and remain free. If you see a parallel or allegory in those circumstances to the inability of our leaders in Congress to work together for the common good, rather than bicker along party lines without compromise — then you truly understand where this fantasy poem of an ancient battle came from. It also tells the tale of the original invasion of the Roman legions into the German province.
