Roman/Celt Assembly. Sample Text:
But first, we must get our soldiers keen to fight again. This calls for something special. Let’s hear it everybody – our very own Roman Rap!
(All Romans stand and chant rap together, General reading from the script and leading rest)
Here we come – get outta our way
We’re a working army, we’re not here to play!
Stand aside, don’t look in our eyes,
Not, that is, unless you’re prepared to die!
A better trained force
You’re not likely to meet.
Hey! Look at that lot!
We’ll ‘ave ‘em, dead on their feet!
We’ve got the looks and the armour too.
Move over, you ruffians, and let us through!
Huh! Look at him, with tartans soft to touch.
Is his face blue from cold, ‘coz he’s not wearing much?
Don’t tell me the war paint’s there to scare.
Forget the make-up, mate, concentrate on what you should wear!
Take my armour, all shiny and hard.
Where did I buy it? O h here, take this card.
