THAT ROMAN PILE OF BOULDERS!

THEY CAME LIKE THE CONQUERING HEROES OF THEIR HOLY CRUSADE.  
BASTERDISING EVERY HEATHEN AS SOME SORT OF GODS MISTAKE.
CIVILISATION STUMBLED AGAINST THE WILD AND PAINTED CLANS,
SO THEIR WALL OF CONFRONTATION COULD NOT DEFEAT THE WILL OF MAN.
ON THIS LAND WHERE I WAS BORN STOOD ONLY CHIEFS OF COMMON CLANS.
THEN CAME THOSE KINGS OF SERVANT MAN FORCING CONQUEST OVER LANDS.
WITH STRANGE DREAMS OF DOMINATION THEIR GODS SUPREME,MAN FORGOTTEN.
OUR WAYS OF SIMPLE CLAN SHARING LAND.WE FRIGHTENED THEIR IMAGINATIONS!
THE MOUNTAINS AND GLENS GREW IN MYTHS  AGAINST THOSE SUPERSTITIOUS.
SO THEY BUILT THEIR WALL TO KEEP US IN AND WE BEGAN TO SING VICTORIOUS!
SO COME TO THE LAND OF THE  FREE SCOTS WHERE ALL CLANS ARE EQUAL!
OUR WELCOME IS MODEST ,BUT WE,LL FILL YOUR POT !FROM AMONG THE PEOPLE!
EMPEROR HADRIANS WALL IS A MONUMENT TO FEAR OF THEIR GODS DAMNATION.
ONE SIDE ONLY LISTENS!THE OTHER DISSAPEARS TO OBLIVION!
OUR GARDEN OF PARADISE HAS NO NEED OF GATES!OR BORDERS!
A PLACE WITH CLANS WHO WILL GLADLY FILL YOUR PLATES TO ORDER.
