Better No Martial Highway

A road-less wild, it waited, desolate
For martial rule. No soldiers came.
A native engineer designed
A highway out of steel, in sections,
A ramrod laid across the land.

The road was ready now,
But it was shunned
By all but soldiers.
Straight across the land they marched,
The Roman soldiers.
