The Uprising of Hannibal The Great
Stump...stumble...crush crush...hannibal the mountain pass is too
narrow for our army...elephants and all,
The stakes have been made son...the roman sheath fails in our
presence...Punic War individualism is no more,
Have you no enthusiasm of what is to come...the mere sight of our
Carthegian forces move the earth from it's very roots,
We carry the banner of domination and rebellion crushing
nationalism...the Romans have no choice but to surrender their horses.
Sir...a majority of our troops have been lost in the mountain pass
crossing...I don't know if we will be able to fight Rome's waves of
Don't worry my son...the surrounding countrysides have joined our
cause...scorpio brothers beware you have met a match unbeknownst,

We are nearing Rome...the battle is near...confrontations abound
around every wall and crevice.
Well sir we should really attack Rome...it's just up the cobblestone

The second city did fall...like Jericho on a warm sunny day...the
sound of screams piercing the air from men, women, and children
The manner of our sights are lost...visions now disturbed by images of
self destruction and greedy upturn...why us,
The Romans have begun to push us out...Hannibal my friend what
next...there doesn't look to be any way out,
Fight my son...for the honor of Carthage fight...defend your families
name and legacy...your superior pedigrees,
The sword was thrown...the arrows were shot...hundreds of thousands
died to give the last dying wish...freedom from freedom.
