Leaving the banquet after an evening of pure pleasures

filled with food and wine beyond measures
The type of indulgence deserved after a day filled with toil and leisure
Under a scorching  sun and dirty roads
From sitting through an interminable debate on civil codes
The evening is more promising
For with family and friends, all will be reclining
To enjoy delicacies from Lucitania to Assyria
And from Britannia to Iudaea

Leaving the banquet after an evening of pure pleasures

The brave roman decides to go on a great adventure
There is only one word to describe the way home; danger
The roads are deceitfully designed
And the lack of street light will leave him blind
And when the light fades, the darkness thrives
So the streets are filled with knives
A simple wrong turn will end his life

Leaving the banquet after an evening of pure pleasures

Festus decides to put aside all his mother’s lectures
And fully steps in the darkness…
