Take some Picts, Celts and Silures
And let them settle,
Then overrun them with Roman conquerors.

I am surprised why, when people is interested in leaving silly, insensitive or even offensive remarks, why they do it in a site about poetry, that id transversal and universal, open to all but not to " everything" ... I say things that seem inconsiderate in my poems, and almost don't recognize myself...and that implies that I never prejudge or vilify another. Abot the lines: yes, open society, by naming the innumerable mixes, it achieves its purpose.
