Leaving Eboracum


Recommended Posts

Sleeping with the enemy
in a bed he knew too well,
Brude departed from Sabina's villa
and had a wall to scale.

He would leave Eboracum
that night, never to return,
as a legion was beyond the wall
to pillage, rape and burn.

Woeful of Roman women,
as they were not of his kind,
the chill of dawn warmed his heart
and cleared the mind.

It was Septimius Severus,
Brude swore an oath to kill,
as he led his soldiers beyond the wall
to break the Pictish will.
