The hamlet called Armorica,

Of the gauls,

However small,

Could not be defeated,

By the mighty Romans at all.


The resourceful,

Conniving Romans,

Were at their wit’s end,

About how to crush,

The spirit of those ‘barbarians’.


The Romans attacked, threatened,

Bullied and banished-

But before they would know,

Their captured gauls would, as if vanish.


Their brave hero Asterix,

And the gauls’ magical potion,

Seemed to teach the Romans,

A valuable lesson-

That no matter how full proof,

Is the conqueror’s grand plan,

He should never underestimate,

The power of an united clan.


What do you think?
