Would I have the courage to commune with you, Celtic queen?

Iceni regis

you bloodied Roman legions

in Britannia.

but when you faced your end

tell me, was it worth it?

What would be your response if I did?

American man

did not your people bloody

English Regiments?

Considering what you gained

how would you answer?
