You want to forget the story of Rome,
of dashing warriors and gladiators gloried across our screens.
You want to forget the prophecies of doom,
of weeping and a Saviour that may come
and pray that this peace remains
for time has told over again that strife will cause a loss,
no gain would it bring.
Let Rome be Rome in days gone by
but may our peace remain,
to leave us with our plates of fufu
communing with the bowl of afang soup,
may this peace remain.
