The Romans are on the way

Gather the troops
Rally your men
This is our stand

The Romans are on the way

Hide your wife

Beautiful eyes of blue
With hair of golden hue
Im telling you now
with sweat on my brow
I'd love to go out with you

I'll try my hand at Haiku.

The Battle is Nigh,
Peltast blades are Sharpened,
And Cavalry Bred.


I attempted to use the Traditional references to Time and the Cutting word, Kireji.

A MoW Holiday Experience:

Twas the week before Christmas, but no gifts you see,
The mods wanted GOON-blood and they took it from me;
I've put in the effort, I've played real hard,
But was accused of cheating like a pubbie retard;
My account was frozen, and secret review underway,
Deletion without appeal? That's hella gay;
It's one thing to remove me without a just cause;
But to delete my whole guild should be against some laws!
They said it was macros, whatever those are,
I just played day and night to get myself far;
I decided to stay, instead of just leavin';
If you give me 50 T5s, I guess we'll be even!

There once was a boy named Levi,
He dreamed that he could fly,
then he fell down,
and had a big frown,
and now we can find his eye.

i made this when i was in second grade :P

Now for a more Free-Verse style.

The Romans are at Our throats,
The Persians bark at our heels,
And all the while the Guildmasters Sqaubble.

I can hear the hooves of the Roman Knights,
I can see the gleam of their Pikes in the Sun,
Their Seige engines, Kicking up dust.
And the Romans are upon Us again.

My troops cower in Fear, they are far outmatched,
hiding in huts of straw thatch.
The other generals flee, they know we're doomed.
Others simply stand and wait, bemoaning their fate.

The Romans are upon us!
They knock at our gates, Pillaging our camps.
The Guildmasters are fighting, casting blame,
As the ash chokes our Farmland.


Ah, i'll try and think of some more.

*Note to Contest Supervisors: Please do not take this into judging,as i have other Submissions, and my Later work is of Higher Quality.

The Egyptians have made a Stand!
How glorious that Sight!
I recieved word last night, a message so Grand!
The Egyptians have won a CZ, they Say.
Some Scoff, and others Guffaw.
We thought they had all perished under the roman Blight!
Yet still they stand, in their Lone bastyion, Defying the Conquerors.
I went to see myself, and I could not believe what I saw,
For as the romans were still celebrating at Bara Bankl,
The Egyptians had broken the Stanglehold!
I returned home to China, Crying "Open your Doors!"
"The Romans have not won Yet!"
They looked at me with Bewilderment and Glee,
"Come, let us take our Nations three, And stand against the Romans,"
"We shall be ever so Bold!"
And with a Clattering and a Banging,
We stormed out of the Castle,
Pikes and Swords and Banners Waving, Bearing the Call,
"Egypt has made a Stand! Their story is yet untold!"
And so we made our Merry way, Gathering more to the Fight.
Until we stood at the Roman's front Door,
And re-took our Borders.
And from there we Raised the Call,
"Hail Persia, Hail Egypt!"
"The Romans shall not Defeat us this Night!"

*Edit*

On high, what news strikes my Ear,
The Romans have suffered a loss?
This brings to my Eye, a Tear.
How could this have happened?
We crushed them into the dust, we took every last Castle,
We plundered their land, we ruled with an Iron fist.
Yet in Cairo there is news,
Of our Fist's grip being Shattered!
This cannot be, we mighty Three!
We have ruled Rome for many days, How can we have lost to them?
We are the Guilds Three, and they shall learn to Fear our Might!
We shall beat them until their Robes are but Tatters!
Send in row after row of Knights,
Deploy the Scorpions, the Ballistae!
Send the finest generals, For Egypt shall not Win this Day!

We sit and celebrate and cheer,
'Tis our Greatest Victory of the Year!
We took this Palace from under their Nose,
And we sit here relaxed, the Sage murmuring Prose.
When a great crashing shakes the walls, and the laterns sway.
I dash to my Ladder, up to my post on the wall,
It appears today was not the roman's fall.
They come in a sea, their blades glinting.
They want what we have retaken, they want revenge,
For we have shattered what they only began cherishing.
Yet still they come, in drove upon drove, bearing a heavy intent.
They will not stop until our Innards are Rent.
There is a call on the Horn,
"Call Cairo, the Romans are Coming!"
The messenger dashes across the sand,
Dodging arrow and boulder flung at his Head.
Yet we shall not be so lucky,
Indeed, we will likely be Dead.
The pounding of hooves catches my ear,
The Romans draw ever Near.
Soon the sand is flying in the air as Cavalry charge the palisade.
Hefting my blade, i look to my Captain,
He is as Afraid as I.
But then he stops his Chattering teeth, and looks across the Sands
to the banners assembled, and raises a cry,
"Hear Romans, You shall not have this Castle, for today,"
"It is you who shall Die!"
And with a Grin our Faces, we attacked the Roman Scourge.
"Long Live Egypt! Mighty is our Forge!"

This is War me boys – me boys
This is war
The Chinese have with them numbers in mass
But Roman armor be hard to penetrate
The Persians lands are treacherous indeed
But the same can be said about Egypt
Ancient armies collide like boulders upon boulders
Ancient foes will attack wave after wave
The ground will shake under their trample
Lives will be lost and lands will be conquered
This is conquest where much will be gained
Oh yes
This is War me boys – me boys
This is the Ministry of War
