All of those silly Scots
Bothered the English a lot.
But the wall wasn't built
For those cute men in kilts
T'was for the haggis they cooked in the pot!

AHH How I missed a good limerick war!

When the Pictish tribes saw that wall
they laughed 'til their kilts did fall
they pointed and giggled
'til their noses wiggled
and they chased those Romans to Gaul.

Re-writing history is fun

One gets the feeling that Hadrian's Wall was the "last straw" to those oppressed northern barbarians. Roman troopers died when the barbarians stormed the wall because Emperor Hadrian had built something which could not be defended. The barbarians continued their thrust, killing and looting across the land; a thrust which would go all the way onward to the eventual sack of Rome.

I also love re-writing history--and you thought the wall was for the Scots--it was for the haggis!!

Hmmm maybe we should pick another time in history to make fun of:-)
